DIY Body Sugar Scrub! || Peppermint & Melaleuca

Sugar scrubs are an amazing natural way to exfoliate your skin leaving it healthy!


Importance of Exfoliating:

Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliatingroutine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.




This is an easy DIY recipe for a peppermint & Melaleuca scrub!

Peppermint Benefits:
Reduces stomach aches, great for sinus issues (seasonal threats, stuffiness, etc), helps with head discomfort, soothes muscle aches and looses them up, antimicrobial, soothes digestion, freshens breath, stress/emotional upset reliever... basically, peppermint is amazing and a MUST HAVE).

Melaleuca Benefits:
Melaleuca is known for its cleansing and rejuvenating effects on the skin (Hello! of course i put it in my body sugar scrub!). Helps with environmental and/or seasonal threats. Promotes healthy immune function!

Recipe

Ingredients 

  • Raw Sugar (1 Cup)
  •  coconut oil and/or almond oil (1/4 Cup)
  • Peppermint Essential oil (3-4 drops)
  • Melaleuca Essential oil (3-4 drops)
  • Glass sealable jars!

Directions:

Soften/Liquify coconut oil using hot water (don't use stove or microwave as the coconut oil being too hot can run the consistency of the sugar).
you can add in a little almond oils if desired.


place in measuring cup.

add sugar!
add in Essential oil drops!

its so important to get good quality oils! (especially the melaleuca). "large amount of what is called tea tree is either synthetic or adulterated to include synthetics. In addition to this issue, much of the "real stuff" is actually distilled with a chemical distillation process, making it much more precarious to use"
i only trust Doterra!
