DIY: Ginger Sugar Scrub

scrub    

A favorite that we used to make way back when we first started making skin care, this ginger sugar scrub is warming, moisturizing, and stimulating.

In a glass bowl combine the following:

  • 1 cup evaporated organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic sunflower oil
  • 1 TBSP organic ground ginger powder
  • 20 drops ginger essential oil (add some cardamom oil to take it to another level!)

Stir the sugar scrub until all is well combined. Store in a glass jar and use in the shower as needed. I like to end my bathing ritual with this scrub as a final aromatherapy session and moisturizer. Apply a handful to wet skin and gently scrub your body down. Rinse. Your skin will be so soft and gently exfoliated. Keep in mind that a sugar scrub will make your tub as slippery as a greased pig! Use with caution. Try to keep the water out of your scrub and it will remain more shelf stable.
