A couple of easy recipes for exfoliants and scrubs that you can easily make at home and that don’t use ingredients that are toxic to the person or the environment.
Find a jar big enough to contain all the ingredients. You need half a cup of coconut oil, half a cup of brown sugar, a cup of coarse salt, 10 drops of grapefruit essential oil, 10 drops of orange essential oil and 10 drops of lemon essential oil.
Mix the sugar and salt together while you heat the coconut oil on a low heat stove. Once the coconut oil is liquid, pour it over the sugar and salt. Add the essential oils and mix well. Use this exfoliant in the evening before going to sleep, citrus essential oils are photosensitive, meaning they make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
Take half a cup of the carrier oil of your choice, add half a cup of coarse salt, and then add 20 drops of lavender essential oil. This is a very calming exfoliant. Using a carrier oil of your choice suitable for your skin type and salt or sugar (or even both) you can also make a custom exfoliant using your favorite essential oils for your skin. Always pay attention to the doses, essential oils must always be well diluted.
