Honey and Sugar Scrub
Benefits of this Honey Sugar Exfoliating Scrub
Our Honey Sugar Scrub has lots of great natural benefits.
Sugar’s small particles are excellent exfoliant, and are used in a number of body scrubs to exfoliate dead skins cells to reveal the glowing skin underneath.
Sugar presents also natural humectants properties, meaning that it hydrates the skin by drawing moisture from the environment into the skin. The glycolic acid naturally found in sugar encourages cell turnover making your skin look younger and fresher.
Honey not only has lots of goodness and vitamins but also has antiseptic properties. We promise your skin will feel amazing after this DIY spa treatment.
How To Make Sugar Scrub
- 2 cups of Sugar.
- ¼ to 1 cup coconut oil
- 3 Tablespoons of honey.
- Optional 10 drops of Lavender essential oil.
Mix some of the sugar and all of the oil in a bowl. We used white sugar here but raw or brown sugar can be used too.
Add the honey and lavender essential oil while stirring the mixture. For our sugar scrub recipe, we found about 10 drops but this will vary, depending on the quality of oil you use and the type of oil.
Add the rest of your sugar until it is the consistency you want.
Put your sugar scrub into a container. We love to put ours in mason jars to give as gifts but if it’s for yourself even an airtight Tupperware container will do.
