How to Customize Your Body Scrub

Body Scrub

1. Choose a scrubbing agent that suits your exfoliating needs

In addition to being highly absorbent and hypoallergenic, ground oats help soften the skin. Their gentle exfoliating powers promote cell turnover and are well-suited for dry or sensitive skin.

Raw sugar is wonderful at dislodging the dead skin cells at the surface of your skin, thus revealing the healthy glow hiding underneath!

Epsom salt is a naturally occurring, pure mineral compound. The magnesium it contains helps create a feeling of calm and relaxation. It is also known to ease pain and relieve inflammation.

You can also repurpose old coffee grounds—which have been known to reduce the appearance of cellulite—by using them as an exfoliant.

2. Enrich with specialized ingredients

Lemon juice is loaded with healthy vitamins that can make your skin glow. Use only a little bit at a time, though, as the acidity could interfere with your skin’s natural pH. Fresh mint, ground vanilla beans and cocoa powder are all fantastic ways to add color and scent to your body scrub, as well.

3 Add a light carrier oil

GRAPESEED oil is a gentle, easily absorbed oil loaded with moisturizing fatty acids. It can penetrate blocked pores, help get rid of breakouts, and balance out both dry and oily patches.

4 Create an original fragrance using essential oils

SWEET ORANGE essential oil has antibacterial properties and a gorgeous, fresh scent. It has been used for centuries across the Mediterranean to stimulate digestion and circulation.

CEDARWOOD essential oil has a pleasant, wood-like scent. It can cure inflammation and tighten loose muscles for a smooth-yet-firm feel.

PATCHOULI essential oil is commonly used in aromatherapy because of its antidepressant properties. It can also regenerate skin cells to keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant.

VANILLA essential oil has been used for hundreds of years to treat low libido, anxiety and high blood pressure. It can also help relieve muscle pain and cramps, and naturally balance hormones.

Many other Oleum Vera organic essential oils can be incorporated into your custom body scrub for an entirely original scent! Learn more by visiting our Essential Oil Shop page.
