I love a good sugar scrub but don’t love all the extras that are in some commercially prepared ones. Plus they can be expensive. This easy DIY sugar scrub requires just a few ingredients and can be infused with your favorite essential oils.
Ingredients needed for DIY sugar scrub
5 drops of your favorite essential oil
1 C sugar
1 C olive oil
1 TBSP vitamin e oil
4-5 drops of red gel food coloring (optional)
Mason Jar with a lid
Directions to make DIY Sugar Scrub
Put sugar in a bowl.
Add the olive oil and vitamin e oil in another bowl. Mix together.
Pour the combined oils in with the sugar. Stir to mix.
Add the red gel food coloring drops to the sugar combo. Stir to mix the color.
Add the essential oils to the scrub. Blend well to ensure that the essential oils are well distributed.
Scoop into a lidded mason jar.
These directions make enough for one larger mason jar of sugar scrub. You can easily multiply the ingredients by the number of sugar scrubs you wish to make. These are fun homemade gifts. The DIY sugar scrub would also be cute to make at a spa birthday party or a girls’ night.
