Easy Sugar Scrub Recipe

Sugar Scrub Recipe

It wasn’t until I took an herbalism class that I realized just how easy salt and sugar scrubs are to make. Its natural skincare, its inexpensive, it’s fun to do, and it makes a great gift! I loved this sugar scrub recipe, it only took a couple of minutes to whip up, and it felt so luxurious in the shower. There is something so special about using handmade products. They just feel better.

The herbalist I received my certifications from was always adamant that there are no set measurements with these. A little frustrating when you simply want to follow a recipe, but she emphasized that herbalism is a personal journey, so you should strive for a scent that intoxicates you, a consistency that feels luxurious to you, it is all tailored to meet your needs and what you are drawn to. You must identify your desired consistency for this sugar scrub, but I will tell you what I used to give you a good starting point.

Hibiscus Mandarin Sugar Scrub Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 Tbsp raw cane sugar 
  • 2 Tbsp dried lavender
  • 1 Tbsp dried hibiscus flower, finely ground
  • 12 Tbsp olive oil
  • 20 drops mandarin essential oil

Mix together and place in glass mason jar. Keep by the sink for hand washing or in the bath for a great body scrub.

A Few Tips:

  • If you can’t eat it, you shouldn’t put it on your body. Your skin absorbs everything you put on it so strive for a natural skincare routine. This is a great place to start. Ingredients matter so choose high quality and organic whenever possible.
  • If your mixture is too rough, add more oil.
  • If your mixture is too dry, add more sugar.
  • You will want to invest in a mortar and pestle. The dried hibiscus flowers are rather large and are sharp! You’ll want to grind them down into a finely crushed powder before using on your skin.
  • Oil naturally separates. Keep at room temperature and leave room in container for separation. Stir before using.

Incorporating herbalism into your daily routine is so much easier than you think!
