Why spend unnecessary funds on body scrubs, when more than likely, you probably have all the needed ingredients readily available in your kitchen pantry. You can quickly whip up a batch in comfort of your home.

Ingredients below:

  • 1 cup turbinado sugar ( this will aid in the texture of the scrub)
  • 1/2 cup oil – (coconut oil, olive oil, or almond oil)
  • 1/2 cup of kosher salt (adding to much of this ingredients, will cause it to be to rough on the skin when applying)
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  •  10-13 drops lavender oil ( I used NOW brand). Depending on how strong you would like for the lavender scent to give off, you can  either add more or less drops. Its all about personal preference.

Instructions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Add more or less oil to your preference. Personally I prefer a little more oil.
  3. You can find the cutest jar type containers from any local craft store.
