What is a Sugar Scrub?

A sugar scrub is a gentle, yet effective way to exfoliate and cleanse your skin. The granules in sugar help to slough off dead skin cells, while the oil in the scrub provides hydration and nourishment. When combined with essential oils, you create a powerful and customizable skincare product with numerous benefits.

Benefits of Using Essential Oils in Sugar Scrubs

  • Aroma: Essential oils bring their unique and pleasant scents, making your sugar scrub an aromatic treat that uplifts your mood every time you use it.
  • Therapeutic benefits: Each essential oil carries specific properties, which can target specific skin issues, or even provide mental or emotional support during use.
  • Natural: With Oshu Oils, you're using pure, natural essential oils, free from any synthetic or harmful ingredients.
  • Customizable: You can create a tailor-made scrub to suit your preferences by choosing your favorite essential oil or blending a mix of them to create your desired scent and benefits.

Ingredients Needed for DIY Sugar Scrub

  • Granulated sugar
  • Carrier oil (such as coconut oil, almond oil, or jojoba oil)
  • Essential oils of your choice
  • Optional: add-ins like vitamin E oil, crushed herbs, or even food coloring

Step-by-Step Guide to Making Your Own Sugar Scrub

  1. Choose your essential oils: Decide on the essential oils you want to use based on your desired benefits and scent preferences. Oshu Oils offers a wide range of essential oils, each with their unique properties and aromas.
  2. Measure your ingredients: Aim for a 2:1 ratio of sugar to carrier oil. For example, you could use one cup of sugar to ½ cup of oil.

  3. Mix the ingredients: Combine sugar, carrier oil, and essential oils in a bowl and mix well. Make sure the sugar is evenly coated with the oil and the essential oils are evenly dispersed.
  4. (Optional) Add extras: If desired, mix in any additional ingredients, such as vitamin E oil or crushed herbs.
  5. Store your sugar scrub: Transfer your sugar scrub to a clean, airtight container, and store it in a cool, dry place.
