Hey, all. It’s Blogmas Day 5 and I have another DIY!
I make body scrubs all the time from simple all natural ingredients and today, I’m gonna share a modified version of my in-shower moisturizing treatment. If I’d had to name it, it’d be my Christmas Mint Salt and Sugar Scrub. Modified because I’m adding a little Christmas to it, of course. =).
I love this scrub because it is creamy, it’s lightly scented, and it works. Coconut oil is ultra-moisturizing. Honey is antibacterial and full of antioxidants that the skin benefits from. Lemon is brightening and promotes collagen production. A triple threat!! Let’s get to it:
Step 1: Gather ingredients. I use all natural, organic and raw ingredients (expect for the food coloring). What you’ll need is:
Equal parts (3/4 cup each)- Coconut Oil and Honey
1 tsps Sweet Almond Oil
5-10 drops Peppermint Oil
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4-1/2 cup Epsom Salt
Empty glass jar
Large mixing bowl
Step 2: Color the Epsom salt. Split the salt between bags and add food coloring. Start with a few drops and add more until coloring is uniform and as desired. Let salt sit out. I chose to use red and green food coloring.
Step 3: Combine coconut oil and honey in large bowl and mix on medium high for about 2 minutes or until lumps in the coconut oil is gone. Add sweet almond oil, peppermint oil, and lemon juice. Mix between each ingredient until a yogurt-like consistency is created.
Step 4: Add sugar and mix on low. Gently stir (NOT MIX) in colored salt and pour into jar.
Step 5: Decorate! This step is optional, but how could you resist. Take a picture of your new scrub!
If you try out this DIY, please share your thoughts with me! Also look forward to more DIY body care posts. I have several recipes to share.
Till next time,
