The main reason I started using essential oils was to avoid chemicals in medicines, beauty products, and cleaning products.
In December, Jenessa made a sugar scrub that she gave to some friends as a gift. There was some left that I tried and I loved it! It was made with simple ingredients…sugar, coconut oil, and essential oils. After using it I didn’t even feel like I needed to use my moisturizer. It felt wonderful to avoid my usual cleanser and moisturizer…and the chemicals they contain.
I needed some more, so I started to look up some recipes. I kept it simple.
1 cup sugar
1 /4 cup coconut oil
essential oils (20 drops)
I mixed the sugar and oil together. Then added the essential oils and put it in a jar. So simple!
There are many essential oils that can be used. In December, Jenessa used peppermint and meleluca. This time I tried lemon and lavender.
