Tips on selecting the Body Scrub Recipe

  • Spend more time on areas that tend to be bumpy or rough
  • Using body scrubs can be a messy process, so it's best to apply them in the tub or shower.
  • A film of oil will likely be left on the bottom of the tub or shower; be extremely careful not to slip on this and fall!
  • Coconut oil is solid at room temperature; to liquify it, place it in a pan of hot water.
  • Homemade scrubs contain no chemical preservatives, so they should be stored in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.
  • Always use essential oil, not "fragrance oil," which is a chemical fake.
  • When selecting essential oils to use in body scrubs, make sure they are not skin irritants;
  • Apply in the shower or standing in the bath tub to avoid getting too messy.
  • Recipes containing salt or sugar should not be used on very dry or delicate skin.
  • Finish off applying a natural body moisturizer.
  • Oils like rose, lemon, jasmine, lavender and rosemary are all safe to use on the skin.
  • Drink plenty of water to help with the exfoliation and detoxification process

My favorite Body Scrub Recipe

Honey 3/4 cup
Caster sugar 1 cup
Sea salt 1 cup
Jojoba oil 3ml
Fragrance oil 3ml (orange & ylang ylang are beautiful combined with the honey)

Method: Pour honey into medium sized bowl, then add sugar and stir to combine. Add the salt in increments, to adjust the consistency to your liking. (I prefer a consistency not unlike crytallized honey). When all ingredients combine, add oils and stir well. This recipe is particularly long keeping as the lack of water discourages bacteria.
