Yup, you heard it right. This is a quick tutorial on our families lavender sugar scrub. Quick because it literally has three ingredients – extra-virgin unrefined coconut oil, pure lavender oil, and sugar (I use raw sugar). I use this scrub on my face because lavender is good at fighting acne, the sugar scrubs off dead skin, and the coconut oil acts as the lotion. Make sure to use warm water to wipe your face before and after because the warmth will open up the pores.
Here’s how I make my own sugar scrub
1) add desired amount of sugar in an airtight container.
2) add small amount of coconut oil.
3) add ONE OR TWO drops of lavender essential oil (you will kill your nose with lavender if you add any more).
4) Mix and enjoy.
I have struggled with acne for a very long time. I’m not sure if it’s because of the hormonal change from pregnancy, this sugar scrub, or the combination of both but I haven’t had a full-on outbreak since starting this.
