3 Cups Granulated White or Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Refined Shea Butter
1/2 Cup of Olive Oil
15 drops of Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
15 drops of Vanilla Essential Oil
15 drops of Clove Essential Oil
15 drops Pumpkin Pie Fragrance Oil
Measure out your sugar into a large bowl. In a separate container, measure out the shea butter. Melt in microwave at 50% power until melted. Then stir in olive oil. Follow by adding your essential oils and fragrance oil. (If you prefer to keep your sugar scrub 100% natural, simply omit the fragrance oil from the recipe.) Mix well. Now pour your oil and butter mixture into the sugar and stir until thoroughly combined. Place finished sugar scrub into an airtight container until use. This recipe will fill a container that holds 9-10 fluid ounces.
To use, simply scoop the desired amount from container and massage onto skin. The sugar will exfoliate while the oils penetrate and moisturize skin. Please note that some people are sensitive to clove and cinnamon essential oils. So be sure to test in a small, inconspicuous spot before using all over. I tend to have very sensitive skin but found this recipe did not irritate my skin even using after shaving my legs. For this recipe I specifically used the essential oils from Edens Garden.
Make these sugar scrubs just for you or for family and friends for birthday or holidays – they make great last minute Christmas gifts! And there’s no need to refrigerate!
