Plastic Free July is here, and what a better time to learn to make your own body scrub! All natural and deliciously scented, this scrub is a treat for all the senses – and making your own body scrub also means you won’t have to buy one that’s packaged in plastic – win win!
1/2 cup Australian Sea Salt
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Sugar
1/2 cup Organic Macadamia Oil or Almond Oil
1/2 tsp each Wattleseed, Cinnamon and Ginger powders
Pinch Vanilla powder
10 drops Essential oils (Lemon Myrtle or Sweet Orange – avoid citrus if going in sun)
Mix together dry ingredients – salt, sugar and powders – in a jar. Add oils and essential oils and mix together until it resembles wet sand.
Store in a wide mouthed, glass jar and keep in the shower (but try not to let water get in). Use sparingly on face and body to moisturise and exfoliate.
