Vanilla and Lavender Body 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.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup grape seed oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons dried lavender, optional
- 12 drops lavender essential oil
- In a medium sized bowl, mix together all ingredients.
- Store in a jar and use in the shower or tub daily, stirring before use.
Be cautious when using this product, as the oil can make shower and tub surfaces slippery.
