Homemade Scrub Recipes

IMG_7012 We all know the feeling, when you find an amazing recipe and get really excited but then realise you don’t have half the things you need. Well that’s exactly what I’ve tried to avoid in making these 3 homemade scrub recipes. All the ingredients used you probably have in your kitchen cupboard, except coconut oil which can be found in most supermarkets and health food shops.

I’ve created recipes for a lemon lip scrub, oat face scrub and chocolate and coconut body scrub that will leave you feeling fabulous! They are a great addition to your skin care routine and make fantastic gifts (especially if you are on a budget or are buying for lots of people).
All the ingredients used in these scrubs are great for your skin but if you have more sensitive skin, then swap out large grain sugar for smaller grain (caster sugar).
Lemon lip scrub
How to use it:
Scoop a small amount of the scrub out with your finger and gently rub over your lips. Brush off and apply lip balm. 
1 tbsp lemon juice
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup caster sugar
Mix all the ingredients together, with the back of a spoon, in a bowl, then put it in your container.

Oat Face Scrub
How to use:

Massage a small handful into your skin then rinse off. Wash and moisturise your face as normal.

1 cup oats
½ cup coconut oil (solid form)
½ cup honey

Mix the coconut oil and honey together in a bowl by using the back of a spoon to break the coconut oil down. Next, mix in the oats and store in your container.
