How to Make Your Own Sugar Scrub
I created this sugar scrub recipe last year and have loved using it! The recipe calls for vanilla-infused jojoba oil.
You can either make the vanilla jojoba yourself or purchase it.
To make your own, simply buy whole vanilla bean pods (Amazon.com has organic ones: Vanilla Beans (Whole) Organic – 4 Pods), add 3 or 4 to a large glass jar (16-32 oz/.5-1.0 litre is good), fill the jar with jojoba and let it sit for about a week. Remove the vanilla bean pods, and you’re left with the most luscious vanilla-infused jojoba for your sugar scrub and other essential oil body-care products!
Coconut, Lime, Lavender & Vanilla Sugar Scrub
A fabulous, soft scrub for your skin
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup vanilla-infused jojoba
30 drops distilled Lime (Citrus aurantifolia)
30 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Combine all ingredients in a 12 oz (360 ml) container
Be sure to use **distilled** Lime as the cold pressed lime is phototoxic.
Note: I like to use a PET plastic container (12 oz/360 ml or larger) and leave the scrub in the shower. Use a handful on your arms, legs and back. I don’t use it on my face. It can make the shower floor slippery. If it does, I wipe the floor with a paper towel after my shower.
