Sugar scrub


1 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup oil of your choice: coconut oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, apricot oil, avocado oil, or a combination of these
2-4 tablespoons orange or grapefruit zest
2 tablespoons vegetable glycerine (optional)
10 drops peppermint essential oil
10-15 drops wild orange essential oil or tangerine or lemon or grapefruit oil

Mix sugar, oil, zest, and vegetable glycerine (if using) together. Depending on what type of oil you use, you may need to add more or less to get the proper consistency. Gradually add in the essential oils until you’ve reached the desired scent. It may take more or less, depending on the type of oils you use.  Store your sugar scrub in a glass container.
