My friend, Tonya Chapa from Peppermint Posh, has a yummy treat for you today! You probably shouldn’t eat it, but you could. And once you smell the aroma, you will be tempted (and I won’t tell if you take a bite)! So gather your ingredients and join Tonya in making a batch of this scrumptious scrub…you may even want to make it as a gift this Christmas!
I just could not get enough of the scent of this sugar scrub! My entire family gathered around to breathe in the aroma. I wish the internet had a scratch and sniff option!
I made a big batch of the sugar scrub to give to the staff at our dentist’s office as an early Christmas gift. Since we won’t see them again before Christmas, I brought these in this week, along with the Soothing Cuticle Balm that I whipped up for them.
For the Sugar Scrub, I poured two cups of sugar into a bowl and mixed in 1/4 – 1/3 cup of melted coconut oil (Sweet Almond Oil works as well). Add the oil slowly as you mix it in. You do not want the scrub to be too oily, but still have a nice, soft consistency.
Then, I added 20 drops of Young Living Lemon Essential Oil and 10 drops of Young Living Stress Away Essential Oil. The scents blend so well together! The Stress Away balances out the Lemon, creating an amazing, delicious scent.
Young Living’s Lemon Essential oil is known for its energizing and cleansing properties. It also supports the circulatory system.
Young Living’s Stress Away™ essential oil blend is a natural solution created to combat normal stresses that creep into everyday life. Stress Away is the first product to contain the unique stress-relieving combination of pure lime and vanilla therapeutic-grade essential oils.
Stress Away also includes copaiba and lavender to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium. Featuring powerful plant constituents,
such as the cedrol found in cedarwood and the eugenol that occurs naturally in vanilla, Stress Away can help induce relaxation and reduce occasional nervous tension.
Isn’t it great that not only can you exfoliate your skin with the sugar scrub without any toxins or artificial colors or scents, but you also receive the powerful benefits of the oils themselves? What an invigorating way to start your morning! Energizing, stress free mornings are the best kind! And, both Lemon and Stress Away are in the Premium Starter Kit!
Did you know that you can purchase Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oils at the wholesale price (kind of like a Costco or Sam’s membership, only without the annual fees)? It’s true! Visit Tonya at Peppermint Posh for more details!
