Super Simple DIY Essential Oil Sugar Scrub

I go for a run most days of the week and as a result, my feet needed a little TLC today. To pamper my feet, I whipped up a batch of my homemade sugar scrub – which I obviously infused with essential oils. I just love using this stuff on my worn out and callused feet! I posted the recipe below so you can make your own sugar scrub.

Sugar Scrub Recipe

You will need:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8+ cup coconut oil (you can also use Young Living V-6 oil or any other seed based vegetable based oil)
  • 25 drops of your favorite Young Living essential oil
  • 8 ounce mason jar

To make:

  1. add 1 cup granulated sugar to a small mixing bowl
  2. add 1/8+ cup coconut oil to the sugar, mix well
  3. add about 25 drops of essential oil, mix well
  4. transfer the mixture to an 8 ounce mason jar

*add little more coconut oil if you want your sugar scrub to have a slightly smoother consistency

To use:

  • wet your feet with warm water
  • massage your feet with a small amount of the sugar scrub
  • rinse your feet with warm water
  • follow-up by moisturizing your feet with your homemade essential oil lotion bars

Ta-da!

You’ll be amazed at how smooth, soft, and refreshed your feet will feel. You can save your sugar scrub for yourself or give it to someone as a gift!

Make Your Own Lotion Bars and Lip Balm with Young Living Essential Oils

Today, I made homemade lotion bars and lip balms with my Young Living essential oils. I made a mix of 2 lotion bars and 3 lip balms. :) Here is how I made them…

HOMEMADE LOTION BAR AND LIP BALM WITH YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS

You will need the following ingredients —>

***you can adjust the recipe and use more or less of these ingredients depending on the size batch you want to make.

Follow these 5 easy steps —>

1. Combine the shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, and vitamin E oil in a glass mason jar. Carefully place this jar in a small saucepan of shallow water on the stove.

***you might want to dedicate a specific mason jar for projects like this as mine was difficult to clean after I was finished.

2. Turn the burner on and bring the water to a simmer. Stir ingredients constantly until they are melted and smooth. The beeswax will take some time to fully melt, but keep stirring and be patient.

3. Once all of the ingredients are melted, remove from the heat and stir in your desired Young Living essential oils. For a great scent and to assist in moisturizing, try Young Living’s Lavender and/or Geranium essential oil (add a total of about 15 drops of essential oil).

4. Carefully pour the melted mixture into molds and let harden. I poured the mixture into some silicone molds and lip balm tins that I found online. I love the little lip balm tins that I bought! However, I think I could have saved my money on the silicone molds and poured it into something like ice-cube trays for my lotion bars.

5. Allow your lip balm to cool completely before use. Also allow the lotion bars to cool completely before attempting to pop them out of molds. I store my lotion bars in a covered container.

Ta-da! You will love these! :)

When the lip balm and lotion bar is rubbed on the skin, it will soften and melt. I have been consistently using my lip balm and lotion bars all week and my skin and lips are soooo soft! This will be such a great product to have on hand when the weather begins to get colder!
