Grapefruit Sugar Scrub Recipe

There are a few things that I get obsessed with…right now it’s Grapefruit.  I am LOVING it!  It is perfect right now.  I have always been obsessed with citrusy fruit and the scent of citrus.  It smells so fresh and clean and makes me feel happy and invigorated.

You know how much I enjoy making my sugar scrubs and I had yet to make one with Grapefruit…so here it is ;)!

Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup raw sugar

up to 1/4 cup almond oil

3-4 drops Grapefruit

1 drop of food coloring (no more or it will stain skin) or drop of raspberry juice

2-3 drops of Vitamin E (optional)

Directions:  Mix the sugars together and slowly add the almond oil until you reach the consistency you like.  I like my scrubs less oily so I always use less than a 1/4 cup.  Add Grapefruit Essential Oil, food coloring and Vitamin E if adding.  Mix thoroughly and store in an airtight container.  Good for up to 3 months if kept bacteria free.

To use:  Rub a little bit of the scrub on your body or between your hands with a little bit of water.  Rinse with warm water to remove excess oils.  It will give your skin a nice exfoliation and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and smelling fresh and clean.  Great for use in the shower or bath and before bed time.

    Looks interesting but I think you meant it will leave you smelling like Grapefruit and not like Lavender, right?

    I should be able to figure this out, but am struggling today. How much does this make? I am wanting to use this recipe for a large group, but will be putting them in 4 oz jars. How many 4 oz jars would this recipe make? Any help would be awesome, as conversions give me mega anxiety!

    I am loving all your DIY Spa items and would love to make gifts for my girlfriends; however, I am not on Facebook and do not plan to ever be. Is there a way to get your labels without FB?
