Sweet Sugar Hand Scrub


Your hands will thank you for making up a batch of this amazing and moisturizing sugar scrub.  Not only does it deep clean to help remove germs and dirt, it leaves your hands smooth and soft.  I recommend using this a few times each week.

Sweet Sugar Hand Scrub
2 ounces coconut oil
2 ounces sweet almond oil
8 ounces white or brown sugar
60 drops essential oil (oil blend suggestions below)


Melt the coconut oil over a low-heat double boiler. Mix in the sweet almond oil.  Remove from heat and stir in the sugar.  Allow mixture to cool.  Mix in essential oils and transfer to containers with tight lids.  Use within 3 months. Remove product with a clean utensil for best results. Do not use in the shower or bath as it will make your surfaces extremely slippery.  


Suggested Essential Oil blends..........
  1. Orange & Ylang Ylang
  2. Grapefruit & Lime
  3. Lavender & Spearmint
  4. Eucalyptus & Peppermint 
  5. Lavender & Vetiver
  6. Grapefruit & Vanilla
