The Holidays // DIY sugar salt scrub

Sugar Scrub
Merry Christmas!

This post can either be considered right on time or a day too late - anyway you look at it there is always next year or another holiday to celebrate. 

Today I am sharing with you a super easy, yet adorable and thoughtful sugar salt scrub that smells good enough to eat and makes your skin soooooooo friggin' soft.


Sugar Scrub
I got hooked on sugar scrubs last year after I received one as a gift from my Aunt- sugar scrubs can be a bit pricey so I set out to make my own.

A few simple ingredients and you are off- you may have everything you need already in your pantry and cabinets.

Any carrier oil can be used, however sweet almond oil hands down is my favorite. You can definitely use olive oil or coconut oil if that is what you have on hand.

In addition to the oil pick your favorite skin safe essential oil *- here I used Tangerine, the combination of the tangerine oil and cinnamon makes this scrub smell like a creamsicle.

Then of course sugar + salt- in this case I used beet sugar and pink sea salt.

You then simply add all your ingredients into a bowl and mix thoughtfully.

Package into little jars and decorate pretty.

Hand written labels are more personal than printed and in my opinion prettier for a gift like this.

Once you are all packaged up give them away- but make sure to keep one for yourself!

*IMPORTANT NOTES WHEN USING ESSENTIAL OILS
Certain oils can be applied to the skin, though it is very important to use caution when doing so. Pure essential oils are highly concentrated and need to be diluted for safe, topical use, usually with a carrier oil such as Almond, Coconut or Jojoba.

Using essential oils properly requires the right mix of knowledge and responsibility. Since most are highly concentrated, it is very important to use caution before allowing an oil to come into contact with the skin to avoid irritation.
Never consume an essential oil, or apply it directly to your skin, without first learning whether or not the oil in question is appropriate for topical use and how to properly use it.
