Today I thought I would share an easy DIY that you can do at home with very little effort – just how I like it. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my little DIYs now and again but when the ingredient list is half a page long I’m just too lazy for it. But this one is as simple as can be, and it works perfectly as a little gift to people you love, or if you just want to make bath time a little bit more luxurious.
Sugar scrubs are good to use when you want to exfoliate. We all have a layer of dead skin cells on top of our skin, that’s just how it is. But by using a scrub every now and then we can get rid of them and let fresh skin through. This sugar scrub is perfect for that. The sugar itself gently exfoliates while the coconut oil moisturizes. It is also perfect to use just before you shave to get beautifully soft and glowing legs.
So what you need are three ingredients. Yes, three. Sugar, coconut oil and rose petals. And the best part is, the measurements don’t really matter. That is for you to decide, just by how you like the texture. If you like it runny, add more oil. If you like quite a rough scrub, add more sugar. Easy peasy.
But for the sake of this DIY, I’m going to give you some guidelines. You are also going to need a blender and an airtight jar to store the sugar scrub in.
2 Cups sugar
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
20 Rose Petals
Melt the coconut oil for 10-15 seconds in the microwave. This makes it easier to blend evenly.
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until rose petals are evenly distributed.
Add to a jar and decorate however you want. You can add a ribbon to the jar or a nice homemade label.
And that is it. Now you can enjoy a relaxing sugar scrub. If you want to change the recipe up and add a few essential oil drops for a stronger scent, that is also something you can do.
Keep in mind that the rose petals turn brown after a while, so you want to use the scrub fairly quickly.
