What are the Benefits of Sugar Scrubs?

Sugar scrubs are beneficial for the skin, mainly because they help to:

  • Exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells
  • Boost circulation

Essential oils not only enhance the scrub's aroma but also provide therapeutic benefits that can boost your overall physical and emotional wellbeing.

  • Lavender: Calms the skin and mind, promoting relaxation and restful sleep
  • Bergamot: Uplifts spirits and promotes emotional balance
  • Rosemary: Energizes the body and boosts mental clarity
  • Peppermint: Soothes the skin and refreshes the spirit
