DIY Natural Coffee Grapefruit and Sugar Scrub Recipe

1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbs ground coffee (not instant)
1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon organic rice bran oil or organic olive oil
1/2 mL organic grapefruit essential oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil
5 drops organic bergamot essential oil
Pink Himalayan salt
This recipe was created to be super simple with no scale needed to weigh ingredients! Start by combining the sugar and coffee into a bowl.
Next, measure out your olive or rice bran oil and add to the sugar and coffee mixture. Measure out 1/2 mL of grapefruit essential oil using a graduated plastic pipette and add to the scrub. Follow by adding five drops each of frankincense and bergamot essential oils. Stir well.
Scoop the finished sugar scrub into one 4 oz. container or into two 2 oz. containers. (I used two 2 oz. containers for my scrubs.) Sprinkle the top with a bit of Pink Himalayan Salt which is revered for its therapeutic properties relief contains 84 trace elements and iron and is known to assist in relief of arthritis, skin rashes, and psoriasis.
Close the lid on your sugar scrub tightly, then decorate if you choose. I tied a pretty purple ribbon around my jars and sealed the lid shut with a strip of decorative Japanese washi tape. (Take a peek at what else you can create with washi tape.)
Your homemade sugar scrubs are now ready to use and enjoy. Or gift them for birthdays and holidays! I think these make super sweet wedding favors as well as much pined over stocking stuffer gift ideas for anyone who appreciates homemade bath and beauty products!
