Spa Organic DIY Sugar Scrub | How To Make An Organic DIY Citrus Sugar Scrub
Juice your lemon and lime. Combine the coconut and peppermint oils with all of the moist ingredients.
Then, add the sugar and lemon and lime peels as a garnish.
Stir. And you’re set! You can also keep a jar and spoon next to the sink for summer guests!
How To Store Homemade Sugar Scrub
Store your sugar scrubs in an airtight container at room temperature for a longer shelf life.
Over time, the sugar and oil may separate. This is completely normal! Simply remix the sugar scrub with your finger.
If you want to leave the scrub in the shower, choose a waterproof container also. We do recommend that you store sugar scrubs on the counter away from water.
Because this all natural DIY sugar scrub does not contain any water, it requires no preservatives.
But any contact of water can cause your sugar scrub to eventually mold. And because sugar is involved, you want a sturdy container to also keep ants away!
