Make your own scrub

Make your own body or facial salt/sugar scrub at home with a few simple and natural ingredients!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (110g) Sea Salt or sugar
  • 30-50ml olive oil, depending on how oily you want it
  • 3 teaspoons body cream or face cream
  • 20 drops lavender essential oil for a relaxing scrub or 10 drops of geranium essential oil and 10 drops of lime for a citrus blast.

Method:

  1. Put the salt (or sugar) in a mixing bowl.
  2. If you are making a facial scrub grind the salt or sugar for a few seconds with a pestle and mortar or back of a wooden spoon until it is the texture of icing sugar and not too abrasive – for a body scrub it can be rougher.
  3. Add the oil, mixing well with a wooden spoon. The texture should be moist enough to hold together, but not too oily. You can adjust the amount of oil to achieve the texture that you prefer.
  4. Add the face or body cream and stir in
  5. Gently tap in the drops of essential oil and combine well.

And that is all there is to it!

Use a scrub twice a week to keep your skin glowing.

Best applied in the shower on damp or dry skin in a circular motion and then washed off.
