Vanilla & Lavender Body Scrub

Now that Autumn has arrived I thought it would be a good time to share with y'all this great homemade body scrub! This scrub is really easy to make AND it's not expensive at all! Double Yay!

I adapted this recipe from a fellow blogger Savvy Brown. She had a great blog by the way, so be sure to check it out!

So lets get started with the recipe!

  • Raw brown sugar
  • White sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 Cup Sweet Almond Oil or EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
  • Vanilla EO (Essential Oil) or Extract
  • Lavender EO
  • Eucalyptus EO
  • Jason Calming Lavender Body Wash (optional-this makes it a cleansing body scrub)
  • Glass or plastic jar with a lid

  1. Fill the jar 1/2 way with brown sugar
  2. Fill the jar almost to the top with white sugar
  3. Make a pit in the sugars to add your oils
  4. Stir in the oils
  5. Add more sugars if necessary
  6. If you plan to make a cleansing body scrub, add your body wash now
  7. Add 10 drops of Eucalyptus EO, 20 drops Vanilla EO and/or a capful of Vanilla Extract, 20 drops Lavender EO
  8. Blend ingredients well
How to Use:
Use after cleansing your body
Rub onto skin in a circular motion
Rinse away the sugar
*if using the cleansing body scrub skip step one*

This body scrub will leave you feeling moisturized and your skin will be so soft! This is also great to use as a scrub for manicures and pedicures!
