10 Sugar + Salt Scrub Recipes You’ll LOVE!

 

Why Exfoliate?

Sugar and salt scrubs gently slough away dead cells to brighten your complexion and even out your skin-tone. Scrubs made from natural, nourishing ingredients do so while also delivering important fats and nutrients to your skin!

Learn how to make your own sugar and salt scrubs with these drink and dessert inspired ALL NATURAL combos, plus WHY you should be exfoliating on the regular.

Scrub Texture

As I shared during the Blab, I approach scrub-making pretty similarly to how I cook: I don't necessarily measure everything out exactly. With the exception of many essential oils, there's quite a bit of room to play around with scrub recipes. In fact, you'll find that you might like your scrubs to be “drier” (more sugar/salt than) or “wetter” (more oil) depending on how you're going to use them. I personally like to use wetter scrubs on my face and drier ones on my body.

All that to say: my recipes aren't really recipes. 😉 They are combo suggestions that you might enjoy. Simply combine the ingredients I have listed and then add enough carrier oil to make the scrub the texture you like. Add a little bit of carrier oil at a time, stirring it up frequently, so you can get an accurate look at how it's coming together.

Chris shared a base recipe that is a good starting ratio, and that's 1 cup sugar/salt + 1/4-1/2 cup of carrier oil.

  6. Is there an amount of EOs that you suggest? I know it can depend on the oil but when I make them as gifts, people really like for them to have a stronger scent but I don’t want to use too much EO.
