Hello dear readers. I want to congratulate everyone on the first day of winter. We have winter not only on the calendar, but also real, snowy. Weather pleased today with snow. At such moments, I want to admire the snow, with a cup of hot tea in my hands. And also, put on a warm blanket. It is in winter that we want to wrap ourselves warmer in a scarf, drink a cup of hot tea with lemon, take a warm bath. By the way, my body scrub just ended. I looked, we have a scrub, especially handmade, in an eco shop decently stands. Therefore, today I will be engaged in the preparation of body scrub with olive oil.
I love making scrub, cooking lip balm from oils, at such moments you feel like a magician. I buy quality base oils, solid and essential. In any case, I am sure that I add to the scrub or balm.
Sugar & Olive Oil Scrub
- 6 tbsp. tablespoons of sugar
- 4-5 Art. tablespoons cold pressed olive oil
- 4 drops of essential oil (I have lavender oil)
I use extra virgin olive oil, I dress them with vegetable salads. And today I will use it to make scrub for face and body.
I am using sugar sand. To make scrub, you can take cane brown sugar.
Essential oils are best used with the ones you like best. You can take orange, tangerine oil, grapefruit oil. Unfortunately, at the moment I do not have citrus oils, although I love them very much.
Such oils perfectly enhance mood. Citrus oils are used in the fight against cellulite. Today, in my scrub I will add, my favorite, lavender oil.
In a container I mix sugar, olive oil and essential oil.
I mix everything and shift the scrub into a jar. I have this body scrub jar. I’ll put it in the bathroom and use it. Wow. Minimum costs and time, and an excellent, natural, fragrant scrub is ready.
More sugar scrub recipes can be found in the article on the blog sugar body scrub. There are various recipes for scrubs with spices, coffee, herbs.
One of my favorite body scrubs is the coffee scrub. But if you use it in the evening, you feel incredible vigor, because in the composition of coffee. Then you can stay awake for a long time. And lavender is soothing and relaxing. Such a scrub can be used for face and body.
Coffee & Olive Oil Scrub

I mix sugar with coffee. You can use thick coffee, or you can use regular ground coffee. Mix the dry ingredients and add the olive oil. Mix well. The scrub is ready.
Such a scrub invigorates and improves mood. If you like coffee, the aroma of coffee will not leave you indifferent.
Scrub perfectly exfoliates dead cells. It is better to apply it on a wet body. In small portions, apply to the skin of the hands, legs, abdomen, buttocks. Apply the scrub gently in a circular motion without injuring the skin.
Instead of coffee and sugar, salt can be used for scrub.
Body scrub with salt and olive oil

Salt we need small, not large. Since a large one can injure the skin. If you use sea salt, then it is better to grind it.
Sea salt for salt scrub is best used without additives and flavors.
The principle of preparation of the scrub is the same. Mix salt with olive oil in a container, add olive and essential oil. Ground ginger or cinnamon can be added to the scrub. I added some cinnamon. The scrub has a very pleasant cinnamon aroma.
I also had dried lavender flowers. I bought lavender this summer, dried it, and flowers sprinkled from the branches. I dried them too.
Scrub can be used for the body 1-2 times a week. Scrub with olive oil perfectly soften, nourish the skin. After applying olive scrub, you do not even need to use body cream.
