This DIY Exfoliating Face Scrub made with essential oils will leave your skin looking bright and healthy. With just three ingredients, it is easy to make and economical.
Have you ever made a DIY Exfoliating Face Scrub?
It sounds like it could be complicated and that it would be easier just to use a purchased scrub. In reality, it is SO EASY (5 minutes, tops!), economical and works so well!
If I want my skin to look its best, I have to pay particular attention to exfoliation. My skin has a tendency to look dull, and even as I get older, I am prone to congested pores. Since my skin is also sensitive, I need something that is gentle enough that I can use daily without causing irritation.
Enter this super-easy to make scrub made with just three ingredients: oatmeal, powdered coconut milk, and essential oils! (You can use regular – preferably organic – milk too.)
I used one of my favorite essential oil blends: Soft Skin.
Soft Skin is a blend of Lavender, Frankincense Serrata, Lemon, Petitgrain, Coriander, Turmeric, and Rose Absolute.
It is perfect for “mature” skin like mine, helping to counteract dryness and preventing the look of fine lines. I use the roller bottle daily around my eyes twice a day and can already tell a difference after a few weeks!
Before I had Soft Skin, I made this DIY Exfoliating Face Scrub with Lavender and Clary Sage and loved that too.
Since this exfoliating scrub is so economical to make, I also like to use it on my body. Just make sure that you grind the oatmeal really fine if you plan on using it in the shower or it can leave a big mess.
The Quality of The Essential Oils You Use Matters!
I’ve tried most every essential oil company out there, and I am thrilled to recommend Plant Therapy as my preferred company!
After looking closely at the quality, purity, and ethics of so many companies, I’ve fallen in love with both the company and their oils. They are serious about safety and go to great lengths to test every single batch to ensure purity!
