Time Required: 10 minutes
- For this body scrub, you can use salt or sugar. Sugar can be gentler on the skin. Just make sure to choose a sugar or salt that has small granules that won’t tear at skin. A basic table salt or sugar works wonderfully. If you have super sensitive skin, you might opt for a dark brown sugar.
- Choose an oil. You can use any of the following: organic extra virgin coconut oil (Our top pick, buy at a health food store), almond oil, safflower, vegetable.
- Mix 1 part oil to 2 parts sugar or salt. Place anywhere from a few tablespoons to a cup of salt or sugar in a container. Place half that amount of oil. Mix with a spoon. Don’t freak out if the salt settles to the bottom. It’s virtually impossible to keep it mixed.
- If you want your scrub to smell divine, put 5 drops of an essential oil into your mixture. Mix with spoon.
