Homemade Body Scrub


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I'm not very crafty or do it yourself, but I have a body scrub addiction and it was starting to cost too I looked into doing it myself and it was so easy! I use good ol' white sugar (you can also use salt or brown sugar for varying textures - I like it rough) and I mixed it with lime infused olive oil. I had that as a gift and am unsure of how much it would cost to buy, but you could use plain olive oil also and then just add some essential oils for yummy scents.

I put the sugar in first and then add oil to the desired consistency. My skin is so soft and I feel good that all my ingredients are natural and there is no packaging waste.

    I want to try, could you put together a recipe for me?

    I have been making my own body and facial scrubs for a couple of years now. Depending on the texture I want I can switch them up using sugar or Kosher salt or table salt.
Olive oil works great.
I've seen these scrubs in stores for as much as $75!

    I love making my own body scrub. You can turn it into a mild facial scrub/mask too, by using honey instead of oil.
