I found this Festive Fall Sugar Scrub recipe on the DoTERRA blog and I thought that it would be fun to share! For some of you that don’t know, sugar scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and soften your skin, and the great thing is that you don’t have to limit yourself to the recipe here! Feel free to customize your sugar scrub using different types of sugar, salt, oil, and essential oil. The editor of the DoTERRA blog said “this festive fall sugar scrub is gentle on your skin and has a delicious spicy fall aroma. This scrub is naturally white in color but can be glammed-up with some natural, skin-safe, food coloring. The options are endless!” This recipe can also be changed into cheap and easy Christmas and Birthday gifts which will definitely come in handy! Enjoy.
3/4 cup white sugar (you can also use brown sugar or sea salt)
1/2 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil (you could also use almond oil, grapeseed oil, or olive oil).
4 drops Cassia essential oil
4 drops Clove essential oil
4 drops Ginger essential oil
1. Combine sugar and Fractionated Coconut Oil into a bowl.
2. Add essential oils.
3. Stir until the mixture is the consistency of a slushy. You may need to add more sugar or Fractionated Coconut Oil for desired consistency. If you want to add color, now is the time. For separate colors, divide scrub into bowls depending on how many colors you want. If you want three colors, divide into three bowls. Color as desired and carefully pour on top of each layer.
4. Add to an air-tight container. You’re done! Use 1-2 times a week on hands, feet, legs, or arms. Follow with dōTERRA hand lotion for best results.
