Lavender body scrub will wash away your winter blues and exfoliate, moisturize and rejuvenate skin!

Homemade beauty products are quick and easy to make. It takes just 5 minutes and a handful of ingredients.

One of the greatest things about diy body scrubs is that the possibilities are endless! Some of my favorites include a citrus sugar scrub recipebrown sugar scrub and a sugar lip scrub.

I’m transitioning from lavender mint to lavender and lemon scrub this month, with an added twist to alleviate my dry skin.

The constant change in the weather in winter can leave skin dry and irritated. This body polish has a refreshing scent that renews skin while adding a little glow.

Lavender Body Scrub Ingredients

  • Vitamin E Oil – known for moisturizing, it prevents and treats dry, flaky skin. It’s said to be anti-aging, but there is little evidence to that. You can substitute with almond oil or grape seed oil which are available at your grocery store. Jojoba oil and coconut oil also work well.
  • Sugar – white granulated sugar gently scrubs away dead skin. If you prefer, you can make it a salt scrub by simply replacing sugar with sea salt.
  • Lavender Essential Oil – this calming scent promotes relaxation. You can substitute your favorite essential oil.
  • Lavender Buds – optional for a hint of sweet fragrance, color and texture.

Optional: Lemon Zest – the zest of 1 lemon adds an additional exfoliating element while adding natural fragrance.

How to Make Lavender Scrub

  1. Combine sugar and vitamin E oil in bowl with spoon. Mix Well.
  2. Blend in lavender essential oils, lemon zest and lavender buds to your preference. diy body scrub in mixing bowl with wooden spoon
