With the Holidays swiftly approaching, more and more people are taking a backseat to store bought gifts. So, what are they giving instead? DIY projects of course! From cookies too knitted scarves and everything in between. One of my favorite items to make are sugar scrubs! Anyone can find these ingredients around the home or on the cheap. Not to mention you control the ingredients and don’t have to worry about harsh or unknown chemicals.Here is a list of a few to get you started! Just add a jar and a fancy bow and get ready to out do any store bought scrub!!

  1. Super Sweet Sugar Scrub
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup mashed avocado (optional)
    1 cup of olive oil
  2. Coffee Body Scrub
    2 cups of ground coffee
    1/2 cup of sugar
    3 tablespoons of olive oil
  3. Yummy Chocolate Body Scrub
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup canola oil
    1/4 cup Cocoa
  4. Sea Salt Scrub
    1/2 cup sea salt
    1/2 cup of olive oil
    5 drops of an essential oil in your favorite scent. I would choose one that reminds you of the beach.

Note: For all of these scrub recipes, the instructions are the same… Mix everything together, adding in the oil last. Then scrub away and rinse with water!

The Super Sweet Sugar Scrub is best for dry, sensitive skin. The brown sugar is more gentle than the salt or coffee scrub, and the avocado will add extra creaminess to the scrub and boost the hydration it gives your skin. The Coffee and Salt Beauty Scrubs are the most exfoliating and good if you have non sensitive skin that you really want to get glowy. These scrubs will give you a level of exfoliation that the Super Sweet Sugar Scrub will not.
