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!
When using the scrub, the lavender buds get crushed which gives a boost of relaxing lavender scent. While I really enjoyed that aspect of the scrub, I was worried that continuous use would not be very good for your drain. If this is a concern that you have as well, I would suggest getting a drain stopper similar to this one.
- 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. For safety precautions, you may want to purchase a textured bath mat, such the one I listed here.
