Easy homemade Ginger and Lime Sugar Body Scrub

We were invited to London this week to meet with the team from Smart Shoppers and I had the the opportunity to be part of a workshop on making affordable and brilliant quality home made beauty products, which would make perfect gifts, but also ensure that you made a saving on buying them.

One of the things we made was ginger and Lime Sugar Body Scrub.  I used this scrub this morning before I got in the shower and can vouch that it is AMAZING.  Not only does it smell divine, but it contains no nasty's and is super easy to make.



Ingredients:


  1. Brown Demerara Sugar
  2. Cane Sugar
  3. Essential oils (we used ginger and lime)
  4. Oil (we used olive oil, but you could use any base oil)
  5. Container
  6. A stirrer (If you are going to be making lots, then use a glass cocktail stirrer as it will not absorb the aromatherapy oils and can be reused).


Method:

  • Take one tablespoon of each of the sugars (The demerara is courser, so has more exfoliating properties, but the cane sugar is more delicate) and add to your container.
  • Cover with oil, making sure you stir it.
  • Add 6 drops of essential oil (I used 4 drops of lime to 2 drops of ginger)
  • Repeat the process until your container is full.  The aim is to have a layer of oil above the surface of the sugar, as it will dry out as you take it out of the container.
