- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 10 drops Rosemary essential oil
- Optional: Vitamin E oil
Combine the granulated sugar, fractionated coconut oil, lemon zest, ground ginger, and ground cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Mix well until you have a uniform mixture. Add 10 drops of Rosemary essential oil to the mixture. Rosemary oil can help improve skin health texture and promote circulation. Add a few drops of vitamin E oil for its skin-nourishing benefits and as a natural preservative. Stir the mixture thoroughly to ensure the essential oil is evenly distributed.
Carefully transfer the invigorating sugar scrub mixture into a clean, airtight jar. While in the shower, take a small amount of the scrub and gently massage it onto your damp skin in circular motions, focusing on areas with lymph nodes like the neck and underarms. Rinse off with warm water. After using the scrub, pat your skin dry and follow with a moisturizer to lock in hydration.
Note: As this recipe contains natural ingredients, it’s advisable to use the sugar scrub within a few weeks to ensure freshness. Avoid using the scrub on broken or irritated skin.
