I have always loved homemade scrubs; body, face, hands, feet, you name it! Though I will admit that I have not been as on top of making my own scrubs as I’d like to be. Well it’s time for that to change!
As I prepare for my wedding (10 month countdown! 😬😁😳), I have done a lot of research and made lists and goals to help me get more serious about my beauty regime. You see beauty it’s not just about the eye liner or coverup you use. It’s about health. It’s about having healthy skin, healthy hair, healthy nails, healthy body, healthy mind. It’s about feeling so good that you are not even concerned about that coverup! Beauty is confidence and to me confidence comes with health.
So I have made a decision to use only the best and most pure products on my skin from here on out. If you don’t know this already, the things we put ON our bodies is just as important and the things we put IN our bodies… I have touched on this before when I did a review on an amazing Au Naturale makeup company (you should check it out 😉)… So I know that leading up to my big day, and just for my life in general, the benefits of making homemade scrubs outweighs the ease of purchasing chemical ridden cleansers in store.
With that sad I wanted to share with you the facial scrub I made today and smells and feels like the best thing I’ve ever put on my face!
With a nice blend of coconut sugar, honey, and oils this scrub is well balanced and exfoliates and soothes without leaving your skin with that greasy oil feeling afterwards. So without further ado…
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp coconut oil
50 drops essential oil blend of lavender and rose hip
This scrub is good for both body and face. If you are looking to make a large quantity and use it for your body, try out adding some citrus essential oils in place of the lavender! I don’t recommend citrus for facial scrubs due to the intensity and risk of burning if it gets in your eyes. But the health benefits of orange and lemon on skin is wonderful if using for a body scrub!
Always keep your scrubs in a sealed glass container. And remember that a small amount goes a long way!
