Sugar scrubs are a great way to not only exfoliate your skin but to moisturize it as well. They are also super simple and affordable to make. Today I am going to share two ways that you can make a lemon sugar scrub, the traditional sugar scrub you scoop out and apply to your skin and a sugar scrub bar. Each method has their pros and cons. The traditional sugar scrub is a more vigorous exfoliator but leaves you with a mess to clean up in your shower or bath after you use it vs. the sugar scrub bar which offers a little less exfoliating power but there is no oily mess to clean up afterwards. I tend to switch off between the two.
For the traditional sugar scrub you will need:
1 Cup of White Sugar
5 Drops Jade Lemon Essential Oil(or you can use all lemon essential oil if you don't have jade lemon)
For the sugar scrub bar you will need:
10-15 Drops Jade Lemon Essential Oil(or you can use all lemon essential oil if you don't have jade lemon)
1 Cup White Sugar
Follow the steps in the video below to make your sugar scrubs:
These scrubs also make great gifts. Just be sure to put the traditional scrub in an air tight container and I would suggest shrink wrapping the sugar scrub bars to avoid any dew forming.
