Making a homemade sugar scrub with essential oils
A great way to use essential oils is to make your own sugar scrub. A scrub is the perfect exfoliator for getting rid of dry skin and improving blood circulation keeping it smooth and young looking.
Exfoliation before moisturising helps the skin to absorb the moisture.
A homemade sugar scrub is easy to make. The best sugar I find to use is brown sugar. The courser the sugar the more it exfoliates, and course sugar is best used on your body.
To create a scrub for your face then use finer sugar or blend the finished scrub in a food processor or blender.
Next mix in some oil, this can be coconut oil as it makes the scrub creamier. You can also use Jojoba or Almond oil. So mix these together, starting off with s small amount of oil and adding gently until you reach the right consistency.
