DIY sugar scrubs are some fun and fresh products to give your skin its glow! Check out some of our faves below:

 1/4 cup loose green tea

1/4 cup loose cherry tea

 1/2 cup white sugar

Just to list a few benefits of using the cherry blossom sugar scrub has an amazing fragrance, leaves skin, soft and smooth, does not dry skin, and does not irritate skin.


Chai Sugar Scrub



















 Ingredients:

5 chai tea bags

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup white granulated sugar

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

6 tablespoons coconut oil (room temp) – expeller pressed (unscented) coconut oil is best for this recipe

1 teaspoon honey

2 teaspoons vanilla extract OR 12-15 drops vanilla essential oil (learn to make your own vanilla extract, or get vanilla essential oil here)


Blend all ingredients together. For a wetter scrub, use more oil. Use less for a drier scrub.

Spoon the mixture into an airtight jar. Using a spoon or wooden scoop, use a small amount as a body scrub in the shower. Rinse thoroughly.
