DIY Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub

Finishing up my week of DIY projects {I know its only Wednesday - but my last DIY is not ready to unveil yet and Friday is the blog challenge} I made DIY Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub.  

A while back my friends Marie and Chelsea tried to get me into {or rather talked about it a lot around me} the way they use Essential Oils, I'm not going to lie to you I couldn't bring myself to spend the money {a little pricey} to "try" something.  Coincidentally my sister-in-law-to-be gifted me the Young Living Essential Oil Starter Kit for my Birthday last year.

I started using the oils in the diffuser and cleaning with them ... then Marie made me a Lemon Peppermint Sugar Scrub for Christmas and I fell in love! I used it every time I took a shower and I was so sad when it finally ran out.  So it has been on my list to make another batch! While looking through Pinterest I came across a recipe for Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub and really wanted to try it.

Add 1 Tsp. of Pure Vanilla Extract.

Mix all of the ingredients together until you get a moist mixture evenly distributed.

A few things to note:
  • Be sure to use a Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil {Young Living / DoTerra}.  There are oils that you can get for cheaper at your local health food store however, I don't recommend using those for anything that you are going to put on your skin or ingest into your body.
  • Be sure you are using Pure Vanilla Extract and not Imitation Vanilla Flavoring.
  • If you are going to keep this in your shower use a plastic container that seals tightly {Tupperware}  
  • I personally do not use this on my face {mainly because I use the Clarisonic} 

If you are interested learning more about Young Living Essential Oils or would like to sign up for the Starter Kit.  Contact Marie at or go HERE and use Member and Sponsor ID {2260821}

There you have it, the results of my DIY weekend. Monday I'll have my Weekend Wrap Up back as I am heading to Michigan for Mike's Cousin's Wedding.
