D.I.Y. Beauty – Lavender sugar scrub

There a lot of expensive scrubs out on the market, but none I’ve tried match up to this and it’s cheap to make. It leaves your skin feeling clean, refreshed and silky smooth.

You will need:

 

A small container/jar
Sugar
Baby Oil
Lavender oil
A tooth pick/something long and thin to mix with.

 

Pour in three parts sugar, one part baby oil and 3-4large drops of lavender oil. Mix well. If your mixture ends up a little too wet, add more sugar.

This works well as a facial scrub as the lavender has a calming effect on the skin (you could use rose oil for the same effect). It also is wonderful as a body scrub and  I’ve noticed it freshens up the appearance of tattoos 🙂
