It’s time for me to think about spring- our spring offerings in the shop and our Etsy shop. Our new scents and colors have arrived and given me a bit of inspiration.
Scents like maple sugar, ginger, grapefruit, lemon verbena and coconut; new colors named valentine red, baby boy blue, mango, pink punch have me dreaming of far away vacation destinations.
But for now a quick simple sugar scrub recipe to tide me over, thought I would share it with you.
Grapefruit Sugar Scrub
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup raw sugar
up to 1/4 cup Sweet Almond oil
3-4 drops Grapefruit essential oil
1 drop of food coloring or drop of raspberry juice, beet juice or other natural colorant
2-3 drops of vitamin E (optional)
Directions: Mix the sugars together and slowly add the almond oil until you reach the consistency you like. I like my scrubs less oily so I use a little less than a 1/4 cup. Add Grapefruit essential oil, food coloring and vitamin E. Mix well and store in an airtight container. Good for up to 3 months if kept clean to avoid bacteria. One easy way is to scoop out your sugar scrub with a clean spoon vs your fingers.
To use: Rub a little bit of the scrub on your body or between your hands with a little bit of water. Rinse with warm water to remove excess oils. It will give your skin a nice exfoliation and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and smelling fresh and clean. Great for use in the shower or bath before bed time.
