DIY: Sugar Scrub

3 tablespoons white sugar
3 tablespoons turbinado1 sugar
1 tablespoon himalayan2 salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
grapeseed oil
essential oil of your choice. I prefer orange or yuzu.
optional: 1 tablespoon raw honey

Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl until all the lumps, if there are any are gone. Once everything is completely mixed you can start adding the grapeseed oil. Start by adding 1 tablespoon of oil. Mix it up, and then start adding oil by the teaspoon. Each time you add a teaspoon of oil you want to stir. Your scrub should have almost the consistency of a slushy. I believe I added around 3 tablespoons to mine. If you add a little too much oil, you can sprinkle in a little extra sugar. Once you have the consistency you like, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil and stir. Voila! Now you have your own sugar scrub. I use mine mainly on my hands, elbows and feet. I store my scrub in a canning jar as you can see above. :)

To use, simply take a spoonful and rub onto your hands, feet, or any other dry, rough area, rinse off and pat dry.
