I am such a citrus oil junkie at this time of year, I find these oils really uplifting and energising.
This body scrub is really cost effective, super easy to make and contains zero nasties!
- Organic, extra virgin Olive Oil
- Unrefined organic sugar
- Orange essential oil
- Bergamot essential oil
- Mandarin essential oil
- Fill an empty glass jar 3/4 of the way with the sugar.
- Fill the remaining 1/4 with the olive oil.
- Add 5 drops of each of the essential oils.
- Mix well and store away from direct sunlight.
Note: I use an empty 180g glass jar for mine. If your jar is larger than this then obviously you will need more essential oil.
A word of caution
As with all citrus oils, avoid sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying directly to the skin.
