Homemade Body Scrubs x 3

IMG_5073Part of my skin care routine is exfoliating my entire body every other day. After finally finishing my giant tub of Japanese Peppermint & Eucalyptus scrub from Waxon WaxBar, I decided to try to make my own. Here are three body scrub recipes I came up with using ingredients you can find at home and eat!

Citrus Trifecta body scrub:

  • orange, lemon and lime zest (equal parts; ~1 teaspoon. each)
  • ~1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • lemon juice from ¼ wedge
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Mix all of the ingredients together with a mortar and pestle until everything is combined.

Plant-based body scrub: IMG_5068

  • 5 fresh sage leaves
  • 5 fresh mint leaves
  • ~1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup oatmeal

With some kitchen sheers, cut the leaves in small strips into the mortar. Add the olive oil and mix together using the pestle. Doing this will release the mint and sage essential oils from the leaves. Add the oatmeal into the mix once the leaves and oil are combined well. I used instant oatmeal that I sifted before adding into the mix, but you can add ground or any kind you have at home as well. Mix well until everything is combined.

  • ½ cup ground coffee
  • zest from ½ of a lemon
  • lemon juice from ¼ wedge
  • ~1 teaspoon honey

Mix all of the ingredients together with a mortar and pestle until everything is combined.

I used portable dressing containers to store the scrubs since I tend to alternate scrubs. Putting them in dressing containers also makes them easier to pack in your luggage if you’re planning on taking some scrubs. Use a rubber band the secure the lid even more if you are planning on taking these scrubs on your next getaway.
