Simple Homemade Scrub

If like me you have hard skin on your hands and feet or want to just exfoliate your body and get it ready for your summer holidays, then this simple scrub is a god send! From my experience, this scrub has to be the simplest homemade beauty product I’ve ever made! It has no unwanted chemicals and can be tweaked any way you wish.

As you’ll see I’ve left out measurements because this scrub can be made fresh each time in small amounts or can be made in batches and stored in an airtight glass container.

Lets start 😉

The Basics

All you’ll need is:

  1. Oil(s) of choice
  2. Salt or sugar
  3. Essence oil(s)

And that’s it.

Simply take equal amounts of oil and salt/sugar and a few drops of essence oil and mix until combined fully. coconut is always my oil of choice, but any oil you like will do 🙂 Now that you know the basic recipe, I’m going to tell you my all time favourite ways to tweak this scrub, both for the hands, feet and body?

Two Amazing DIY recipes

⇔ Lemon Tea Tree Foot Scrub:

If you suffer from smelly feet and can’t seem to find anything to help, try making a batch of this scrub and using it twice a week, from personal experience I’ve found this works a dream:) Combine equal amounts of any oil and salt then add some lemon juice, between 3-6 tablespoons and a few drops of tea tree oil or eucalyptus. The acid in the lemon juice really helps in breaking down thick, hard skin and the tea tree helps kill the odor causing bacteria, which will help make your feet feel fresh and brand new:)

⇔ Rosewater Hand & Body Scrub

This recipe is perfect for exfoliating and moisturizing skin before a tan and helps keep dry skin away from problem areas such as the knees and elbows. Like before take equal amounts of oil and this time sugar, combine it with a few drops of rose essential oil and a few capfuls of rosewater. If you want that added moisture kick a little Rose Hip oil is lovely and will help really nourish your skin. The rose water helps sooth the skin and also helps give it a lovely fresh scent, I used this once a week and I can honestly say my skin feels amazing every time:)

And those are my favourite ways to tweak this scrub. That is the beauty of this simple recipe, you can create many different scrubs for many different needs. Orange and basil go perfectly and you can use spearmint/peppermint instead of tea tree. The possibilities are endless:) I will prepare DIY tutorial with visual in the coming weeks. It will be featured on my Facebook page, as well as Twitter and Instagram.
