In my sugar scrub,I used marigolds and lavender due to their healing properties and benefits to skin ,however,you can use any safe dried flowers or leaves .Moringa leaves are safe and very beneficial to the skin. I also used almond sweet oil,but, coconut oil,olive oil or any oil of your choice will do just fine.
Here’s how I made mine. This recipe makes 250g jar
Caster sugar 150g
Brown sugar 50g
Lavender flower (dried) 15g
Marigold (dried) 15g
Lavender essential oil 10 drops
Sweet almond oil 120ml
Glycerine 1 tablespoon
Jar 250 g
Mix the dry lavender,marigolds and sugars in a bowl. Add drops of essential oil. Pour the oil over and stir until well mixed. More oil can be added until you get the texture you want.
Pour your sugar scrub into a sterilised jar and seal with lid.
The sugar scrubs (if kept in an air tight container) will keep up to a year.
