DIY Lavender Sugar Scrub

sugar scrub displayIf you have been following along, you know that I recently shared two fun summer inspired sugar scrubs. In case you missed them you can find them here and here. Well, for something a little different yet still just as fun…the sugar scrub I’m sharing today is great for those much-needed relaxing moments and it’s a refreshing all-over body scrub.

My recommendation: fill up the tub with a warm bubble bath, and bring along this scrub for a relaxing experience.

Initially it will look somewhat runny, but the sugar will eventually absorb the liquid. Of course, you can adjust the sugar to liquid ratio for your preferences. Add a few drops of red and blue food coloring to make it purple {Less is better when it comes to food coloring and sugar scrubs}.

Summer Sugar Scrubs: Part 2

sugar scrubs display borderAs promised, I’m back to share another summertime sugar scrub. Be sure to check-out the Coconut Sugar Scrub if you missed it last week! So back to today—There’s nothing like a cold refreshing glass of lemonade on a hot summer day, right? Well, I was recently inspired by Pinterest to try this Lemonade Sugar Scrub—it is the perfect time of year for such a thing! This pampering scrub is a great addition to manicures and pedicures. It will leave your skin feeling oh-so soft and smelling lemony clean.

Extra virgin olive oil will add a natural yellow color—perfect for this scrub. It is also a wonderful moisturizer. It can be an overpowering smell though, so I recommend combining it with other oils like almond or coconut.

Simple things like that make a big difference. Oh and, Pssst: since you need to zest several lemons for this scrub, you can use the lemon juice to make some homemade lemonade!
