A Simple Sugar Scrub Recipe
For this recipe you’ll need:
- 1/2 C unrefined shea butter
- 1/4 C unrefined coconut oil
- 1/3-1/2 C raw organic sugar (depending on the density wished for)
- essential oils of choice
- an electric mixer
Directions: place 1/2 C shea butter in bowl along with coconut and essential oils. Whip for several minutes, until light and frothy. With a spatula, fold in sugar.
Fill containers of choice and store in a semi-cool place.
When battling dry skin, use your scrub weekly in the shower, applying it areas that need help.
How to Use Your Sugar Scrub
Always apply sugar scrub at the end of your shower. Warm water will soften your skin, making the scrub more effective. It will also prevent you from spreading the heavy oils throughout your hair when you wash.
Before applying the scrub, be sure to turn off the water. Place a quarter-sized dab in the palm of your hand. Apply to the body and, using light pressure, working in a circular motion.
Use as needed. When complete, be sure to rinse off just long enough to remove the sticky sugars. It shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds!
Pop out of the shower and instead of rubbing the body dry, gently dab and pat with a towel, leaving oils on the skin. Once complete, carry on with preparations for the day!
