DIY Sugar Scrub Recipe
This is the base recipe I use for making all of my homemade scrubs with sugar. It can be tweaked and added to in order to make a ton of variations!
1 cup sugar (white or brown)
½ oil of your choice
essential oils (optional)
mason jar or airtight container for storage
Mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container up to 2 months.
Precautions when using scrubs
I would use caution when using a sugar to scrub your face. Most sugars are quite large particles and could be abrasive to sensitive facial skin. If trying any scrub on your face be very gently when scrubbing and it’s always good to test in a small area first. I would not recommend using any kind of body scrub (sugar, salt, or store-bought scrub) more than once or twice a week.
