Make Your Own All-Natural Body Scrub

Do you love the idea of all-natural body scrubs?  You don’t need to spend an outrageous amount of money on ones that may have harmful chemicals in them. Instead, you can make your own with simple steps and ingredients.  Not only will they smell delicious, but they will be beneficial to your health and body.

Coffee Scrub

If you love the smell of coffee and you’re interested in reducing cellulite, make an at-home coffee scrub.  

Recipe:

bathtub

¼ cup of raw sugar

¼ cup of ground coffee

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 teaspoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon sea salt

My friend makes this scrub and swears that it makes her feel more awake.  She said when she’s really tired, she’ll bathe with it in the bath and she instantly feels rejuvenated.

Lavender Scrub

Lavender is an herb that helps us to relax.  It’s great to use on lazy Sundays, or to unwind after a long day at work.  Incorporate the lavender herb into a scrub to soothe you and release stress.

Recipe:

½ cup kosher salt

¼ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon culinary grade lavender extract

1 teaspoon chopped rosemary leaves

I also recommend lavender to help you focus.  I keep some near me when I’m studying up on a big project and then have it with me again when it’s time to present the assignment.

Brown Sugar Scrub

Want to smell extra delicious?  Make a scrub that consists mainly of brown sugar and vanilla.

Recipe

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup white sugar

3 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup almond milk.

If you want to make yourself feel better after a bad day, try this scrub out. Or if you’re going someplace special and want to smell extra yummy, give it a try!
