DIY lavender sugar scrub recipe
Preparation time: 10 minutes
- Clear glass jar, 250 ml (8.5 oz)
- 250 grams (8.8 oz) white sugar
- 3 rounded tbsp dried lavender
- 15 tbsp sweet almond oil
- 5 drops lavender essential oil
The white sugar gently exfoliates the skin, leaving it smooth and silky.
The dried lavender and the lavender essential oil brighten the skin and help to restore your natural skin tone. It has also amazing healing properties.
The sweet almond oil moisturizes the skin and loads it with vitamins A, B and E.
Grind the dried lavender in a spice grinder. The result should like the picture below.
Add the sugar and mix well.
The last step is to add the sweet almond oil and the lavender essential oil. Stir the mixture. The body scrub is ready.
How to use it
Apply on wet skin and massage the body few minutes. Rinse with warm water and use a shower gel. You’ll need a shower gel or soap to clean your skin if there is any ground lavender left. Use 2-3 times a week.

This scrub will last about a month.
Tips and common mistakes
It is essential to grind the dried lavender to release its aroma.
I added the lavender essential oil for a stronger scent. If you don’t have one, you can skip it.
You can use any carrier oil you have on hand instead of sweet almond oil.
