1 cup organic, raw sugar

1/2 cup coconut oil

5-10 drops tea tree essential oil

5-10 drops lavender essential oil

1 tablespoon lavender (optional)

With the first week of fall finally upon us, it’s time to think about our skin changing as the season does. Dry and cool air may be the perfect mixture for scarves and boots but our skin needs a different mixture; one of the lavender + tea tree body scrub variety!

To make your own scrub, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until well-combined. I added actual lavender flowers for an extra exfoliation component. Once you’re finished, store the scrub in an air-tight container.

The combination of the tea tree and lavender in my morning shower was calming and invigorating. It’s also fun to rub something so gritty onto your body before rinsing clean! The scrub left my skin so smooth and revamped that I even skipped the lotion step of my morning routine afterward, saving me time. I find this natural scrub so simple to make that I think I’ll try a lavender + chamomile creation next for a relaxing night-time bath. Enjoy!
