mint & rosemary sugar scrub

This sugar scrub makes the perfect gift or the perfect silky smooth legs for yourself plus it is super easy and quick to make.

What you need

Sealable Jars

1 1/2 cups Sugar

1/2 Extra Vigin Olive Oil

2 tsp Dried Rosemary

A few drops of Spearmint Essential Oil

1/2 Lemon

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, it should come together into a paste that isn’t too runny or too solid. You can add more sugar or more oil until you reach a consistency that you like. Fill the jar(s) and seal, you could also complete with a sweet little label if you are gifting it.

Why is this scrub so fabulous? Firstly it smells delightful. Also the key ingredient, olive oil is amazing for so many things, including moisturising your legs as the sugar exfoliates. If my skin is feeling a little dry and on the dull side I like to add a little olive oil to my bath, the only annoying part of this is cleaning the bath after!

Spearmint essential oil lends a few benefits to this scrub too, it is an  anti septic, restorative and helps relax and relieve stress so go ahead and enjoy the lovely scents of this scrub.

Silky Smooth Legs

My favourite way of using this scrub is to get smooth legs that last longer. Sure this process is longer than that quick shave in the shower where you normally either miss a section or end up with an annoying nick but it does mean you also get to enjoy a bath!

After soaking in your lovely warm bath for a little while shave one leg then take some sugar scrub and exfoliate your whole leg using little curricular movements then rinse. Now shave your leg again, you will find yourself having to rinse your razor lots! Then exfoliate again and rinse. Repeat this whole process again on the other leg. Seriously you have to try this, it makes your legs feel amazing!
