Homemade Body Scrub Ingredients
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract
Homemade Body Scrub Instructions
Measure the ingredients and mix them in a bowl.
I’ve only tried using olive oil, so I can’t say how it would turn out with a different oil. You could probably try another oil like coconut oil, but olive oil is what I already had on hand.
You can add more of the extracts if you want an even stronger scent.
The scent smells really great with the combination of brown sugar, vanilla, and strawberry.
Store it in a container with a lid to use in the bath or shower.
I reused a plastic jar that maple peanut butter came in, but you could use a lot of different containers.
