All-Natural Berry Body Scrub

Here's a sweet DIY all-natural body scrub recipe... it made sense to try it, since blueberries are known for being loaded with antioxidants which is great for the skin + the sugar is an excellent exfoliator.  I like to add a wee bit of lavender essential oil to give it a relaxing-spa-like vibe.  

So.  Here you go, love!

ALL NATURAL BLUEBERRY BODY SCRUB

GROCERIES

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil  (room temperature)
  • Few drops of lavender essential oil (optional) 

NOW WHAT?

  1. Take a gallon zip-lock bag and place blueberries in it, sealed.  You will be CRUSHING the blueberries with a rolling pin and this will help reduce mess + aid in crushing.  
  2. In a bowl combine the sugar as well as the crushed up blueberries.  
  3. Stir in the coconut oil (+ optional lavender essential oil) into the blueberry/sugar mixture.
  4. Place mixture into individual sealed glass containers (air tight).  Use within the week. 
  5. To use, apply a small amount on your wet skin - scrub gently - then rinse off with water and pat dry.  Avoid contact with open wounds, eyes or sensitive areas.  

NOTE:  Just a note, some folks even take it a wee bit further and use blue sprinkles in their blueberry body scrub.  

I'm not that fancy ;)
