DIY Project: Sugar Scrub with Lemon Essential Oil

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

I attended another Maker Monday event this past Monday at the library and Terra McAulliffe talked and taught us about Young Living Essentials Oils. Essential Oils are life-enhancing essence from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, roots and seeds. They combat very effectively the damaging effects of toxins, impurities and harmful substances in our bodies and much more.

During the event, we got to make a little sugar scrub with an essential oil of our choice. It was super simple and easy to make, it's a wonderful idea to give as gifts to family and friends or simply make it for yourself!

Ingredients:
1 cup raw sugar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
* 15 drops lemon essential oil (I used Young Living Essential Oil) for each mason jar *
Mason jars (4 oz.)

Directions:
In a bowl, combine the sugar and olive oil. Add 15 drops of lemon essential oil into the mason jar, then pour the mixture of sugar and olive oil until it reaches the top of the mason jar. * Note *: This recipe makes about 3 little mason jars (4 oz.), just to remember to add the 15 drops directly and to each mason jar, not when mixing the sugar and olive oil. 

Terra also gave us a little pamphlet with all the information about essential oils and it also came with a recipe for a Love Potion recipe since Valentine's Day is coming up soon. So fun! Here's the recipe:

Love Potion Recipe (using Young Living Essential Oils):
5 drops Ylang Ylang
4 drops Patchouli
3 drops Joy
2 drops Sandalwood
2 drops Balsam Fir

Have fun creating your scrub or your love potion!
