Essential Oil Body Scrub Recipe: Citrus and Sugar

Citrus and Spice Sugar Scrub 1

Dry and flaky skin is one of my worst enemies. I have always been obsessed with my skin.  I try to moisturize every chance I get, but my skin still won’t cooperate. My knuckles get so stiff from dryness that they hurt, while my shins get flaky. Everytime I accidentally scratch my legs, white, dry marks screaming “everyone look how dry my skin is” just show up-- it’s so embarrassing. My face is no picnic either, with combination skin of oily on the t-zone and desert dry on the cheeks. Old acne scars are also horribly hard to tackle when having sensitive skin. Exfoliating has helped with the dead skin cells but for some reason, my skin is just so stubborn it stays looking as dead as the skin cells that I’ve already rubbed away!

I have spent precious bucks on skin care products just for beautiful glowing skin but to no avail. Lucky for me, Simply Earth has come up with an answer to my dry, stubborn skin in the form of a Citrus and Spice Sugar Scrub! This scrub works perfectly for those in need of a skin pick-me-up. Its combination of ingredients works perfectly to target dull and dry skin. Coconut oil works great for nourishing horribly dry skin while the sugar acts as the exfoliator. Sage Essential Oil has anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which makes it work great against various skin problems including acne and inflammation from bacteria and skin aging such as wrinkles! Mandarin Essential Oil, on the other hand, is another known essential oil that could help diminish scars, stretch marks, and acne.



In a small bowl, add 1/2 cup of White Sugar.

Finally, an answer to my skin prayers! I exfoliate my skin as often as three times a week, and it leaves me smelling amazing. This scrub not only gets rid of my dead skin cells, but it also leaves me smooth and with fewer scars and pigmentation. And the best part is that all of the ingredients are natural, leaving me with some peace of mind that my skin is in safe (and soft) hands! So what are you waiting for? Go scrub-a-dub-dub away for that smooth glowing skin!
