DIY Vanilla Orange Mint Sugar Scrub — Get ready for summer with this ultra hydrating DIY Vanilla Orange Mint Sugar Scrub recipe!
When I think of the word “Hawaiian” several things come to mind: Pina coladas. Bikini’s. Beaches. Hawaiian punch. (Weird, I know. I don’t even drink them.) Hawaiian rolls. (The Most delicious things.) And candles!
Now if you’re still with me after that train wreck of a thought process, I’m happy to bring you a simple DIY Vanilla Orange Mint Sugar Scrub.
I love to make this sugar scrub since it helps me pretend that I’m in a tranquil Hawaiian place. Plus, it helps you get ready for your upcoming beach days as part of our little collaboration with Glade.
Now prepare yourself for silky smooth skin in all of five minutes. This super simple recipe is inspired by all things Hawaiian.
That’s totally what all of the cool kids do to prep for summer right?…
Ingredients Needed To Make DIY Vanilla Orange Mint Sugar Scrub
- Coconut oil
- Orange essential oil
- Peppermint essential oil
- 1 whole vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Granulated or course sugar — Use course sugar for tough skin. And granulated for more sensitive skin.
How To Make DIY Vanilla Orange Mint Sugar Scrub
For this recipe, you don’t need exact measurements since it all depends on how much scrub you want to make, how fragrant you, and how coarse or soft you prefer your scrubs to be.
So feel free to make edits along the way!
1 — For the base of the scrub, you’ll use 2 1/2 parts sugar to one part coconut oil and mix thoroughly.
If you want a scrub with a bit more exfoliating, you can add up to another 1/2 part sugar.
2 — For the base ratio, mix 1 teaspoon of vanilla (or one whole bean) to about 5 drops of the peppermint, and 10 drops of the orange essential oils until well blended.
Of course, you can adjust the essential oil measurements according to your tastes (fragrance), too!
How To Store Homemade Sugar Scrub
Once your sugar scrub is all mixed up, store it in an air tight container in the shower or bathroom to have on hand.
The warmer the coconut oil gets, the runnier the texture will be so try to keep it at an even room temperature for the best texture!
How Long Does Homemade Sugar Scrub Keep?
Homemade sugar scrub will last up to 6 months. Try to always keep the container lid on and water out of the scrub so that it can stay as fresh as possible.
