Homemade Body Sugar Scrub with Argan Oil

Easy to Make Body Scrubs with Sugar and Argan Oil

An easy to follow and make body sugar scrub idea.
A recipe to rejuvenate your skin and bring it back to life. The sugar is an excellent exfoliate to remove dead skin cells - leaving you skin soft and smooth
You can find the main ingredients on supermarket shelves and pick up the luxury extras that make it wonderful from for less than £8.00

You will need
One Cup of Brown Sugar 
30ml  Argan Oil 
and 4- 5 drops of Lavender essential oil.

Slowly mix the Argan Oil into the sugar slowly, stir to keep the consistency smooth. Add 4 drops of Lavender essential oil. You may also want to add additional ingredients to your scrubs like clays or aloe vera for its skin soothing properties or a small amount honey to improve the texture or your scrub. Dispense into sterilised PET or Glass Jar.

You can customise this recipe with any other skin loving cold pressed oils and essential oils However we do NOT recommend using  "fragrance oils" they are chemical loaded irritants that have no benefit for your skin.. other than to make you smell like a cherry a chocolate bar or even an Christmas alcoholic drink!! They can cause irritation or even allergic symptoms that can cause lasting skin damage. Always use essential oils which are true plant oils expressed by pressing or by steam distillation from the actual plants.

Store in a cool place or refrigerate and keep for no more than 3 weeks.  Don't forget no preservative have been used so if it looks or smells funny - make a new batch.

The above recipe is for personal use only and if you are making any scrubs or other cosmetics to sell or to give away to family and friends remember to ensure they are covered by a current safety assessment.
