Rose & Lemon Balm Scrub


Exfoliation & Moisturizing…@home! This scrub was made with the beauty diy’er who loves recipes with more than one purpose. There are many variations; I recommend following this recipe first and tweaking when you’re ready to make another jar-approx.. 4 oz.

You will need the following: Starts with my Simple Sugar Scrub recipe

1 4 oz. jar
6 tablespoons of sugar
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
10 drops of Rosehip Oil
1/4 teaspoon of Rose Oil (recipe)
1/4 teaspoon of Rose Powder
Pinch of Lemon Balm Leaf
Sprinkle of Rosehips

Mix all ingredients! I like starting with the simple sugar scrub first (ensuring the consistency that I like), then adding the additional oils and herbs in the end. I really like the herbs and oils to marry for at least 24 hours before use, but if you can’t wait, by all means, it’s ready to use as soon as your mixture is complete. I use my scrub once every other day, at night, before bed. In the morning your skin will feel so soft! Not to mention all of the natural benefits of the herbs. Rosehip Oil and Rose Oil is full of Vitamin C and Lemon Balm leaf is such a natural way to lift your mood. If you’d like to substitute an herb with a more relaxing property (especially before bed), use a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil or full on Lavender Flowers.
