Vanilla and Lavender Body Scrub

lavender-vanilla-scrub

I’ve always liked to spend extra time every so often to do at home “spa nights”.  This was the first sugar body scrub that I’ve ever tried, and I can tell it’s definitely not going to be my last!  It was super fast to make, and can be customized using different ingredients that you have at home already.  You will be shocked at how easy it is to make a scrub just like the expensive ones from  specialty stores!


The next time I make this, I will probably omit the dried lavender.  When using the scrub, the lavender gets crushed which gives a boost of relaxing lavender scent.  While I really enjoyed that aspect of the scrub, I would be worried that continuous use would not be very good for your drain.  The choice is yours – but I would suggest trying it once with the lavender and see if you think it would become a problem for you or not.

    Do you have to use grape seed oil? If so where can I get it?

    • Rachel says:

      Grape seed oil is a great option because it is great for your skin and doesn’t have much of a scent, so it allows the lavender and vanilla to shine through. Olive oil is great for skin, but will interfere with the scent. If you click on the bold text that states “grape seed oil” in the instructions, it will take you to a link where you may buy it.
