This body scrub recipe can be used as an alternative to your usual scrub.
It may feel a little harsher on your skin than a regular scrub but that only means the results are going to be better. The end result is it makes the skin feel so soft as the olive oil will penetrate deep into the skin and provide a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep skin smooth and supple.
What you need:
- 1 cup Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup Sugar, white or brown
- A few drops of your favorite essential oil
How to prepare:
Combine all the ingredients in a sealable bowl or jar.
When you are ready to use it, wet your body and apply the mixture to skin and massage. Rinse well.
This scrub can be stored in a sealed (unrefrigerated) container for a couple of weeks.
Important note: To avoid irritating your skin, don’t massage any area for longer than one minute, and don’t use on your face.
