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.

Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub

You guys know I love me a good sugar scrub.  I love to play around with some of the different DoTerra Essential Oils I have and make sugar scrubs that smell delicious but also provide the benefits of the various oils.

I personally love the scent of Cinnamon AND the scent of Vanilla.  They remind me of the holidays and winter time.  So I decided to make a Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub…and let me tell you…this one smells so good!  I think it is now my favorite so far.

Isn’t she pretty to look at too?  I love the texture of this one.  This sugar scrub is a little bit different than my other ones because I added some Raw Cane Sugar.  This sugar has a larger granule and I love the feeling and the exfoliation it along with the smaller granules of the white sugar.

Here is the recipe:

Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub

1/2 cup White Sugar

1/2 cup Raw Cane Sugar (baking aisle)

up to 1/4 cup oil (Olive Oil, Almond Oil, or Coconut Oil)

1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract or Essential Oil

2-3 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil (I love DoTerra’s)

dash of cinnamon (optional)

Simply mix all the sugars and the vanilla and the essential oils.  Then gradually add the oil base mixing while pouring.  Add the oil until you are happy with the texture and consistency of the scrub.  I like mine a little on the non-oily side.  But it is just a matter of preference really.

To use, simply gather a small amount in your fingertips or with a small spoon.  Rub together in your hands and scrub your skin with it.  Rinse off with warm water.  This will leave your skin feeling so silky soft and smelling like cinnamon and vanilla.
