I love getting in the shower and buffing my skin with a natural, homemade body scrub, so today I wanted to share 2 of my favourite recipes with you.
Spring is well and truly upon us here in Sydney; we’ve had some absolutely glorious beach days, and using these scrubs ensures my skin is sun ready and delicious. I swear they help me tan better too!
So here they are; my 2 favourite body scrubs. I hope you’ll use them and love them as much as I do!
Simple Sugar Scrub
- 1/2 cup sugar (white or brown)
- 1/2 cup oil (olive oil/coconut oil)
- Your fave essential oils (start with 3-6 drops and add more from there
Coffee and Coconut Scrub
- 1 C Ground Coffee
- 1 C Sugar or Salt
- 1/2 – 1 C Organic Coconut Oil (melted)
Why coffee? Coffee is fabulous for increasing circulation, can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, and does wonders for mental alertness
No need to buy the coffee – I get mine from my local cafe – they simply keep their old grinds from the day, and give them to me instead of throwing them out! Ask if yours will do the same for you, or, if you have your own coffee machine, just use the grinds once you’ve done making your morning brew.
For both recipes, simply mix all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
There’s no rues when it comes to making your own body scrubs. Now you have the basic idea, play around with any ingredients you like, and see what you come up with. I’d love to hear about your creations, so please share them in the comments below.
