{DIY} Sugar Scrubs

Sugar Scrubs Collage

I started making my own sugar scrubs around the same time I started blogging a little over a year ago. Now I have a whole page dedicated just to sugar scrubs! If you’re looking for a little something to give away this holiday season, these scrubs make perfect gifts. There are 7 to choose from {so far} and I will update this page occasionally, so be sure to check back from time to time for new sugar scrub recipes!

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.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THIS SCRUB:

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!
