Lavender Sugar Scrub

Lavandula is a genus of 47 species of flowering plants that are actually in the mint family, Lamiaceae. You’ll find it everywhere as a fragrance for candles, perfumes, sachets and more because it is one of the most popular scents in the world. For good reason though. Lavender has many aromatherapy uses


About this Recipe

By: Jennifer Shelhart

 This is a great recipe for dry skin due to the oil based ingredients. I like to use this after a day in the garden when my feet need a little attention. 


  • 1/2 Cup coconut oil

  • 2 Cups sugar

  • 10 Drops lavender essential oil

The abrasive action of the sugar gets down in deep to remove the dirt, and the oils help to hold in moisture. After a day of working the earth I suffer major moisture loss from the high levels of clay we have here in Indiana.


You aren’t even going to believe how easy this is.


Warm the coconut oil


Add the sugar


Add the essential oil




That’s it folks! Its really that simple! 

Use this in the bath but be careful because oil is slick! If you’d prefer a foaming sugar scrub that wont leave you oily, check out my version , I think you’ll love it! Its Just $6, find it here.

Do you want to make your own? You probably already have most of the ingredients on hand. I carry my own line of essential oils you can find them here
