DIY Honey & Brown Sugar Face Scrub
- ½ cup coconut oil - softened
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup raw honey
- 10 drops lemon essential oil
- 10 drops frankincense essential oil
- Half pint mason jar
- Mixing bowl
- Measuring cups and spoons
How to Make the Face Scrub
- Add your softened coconut oil and brown sugar to a mixing bowl or glass measuring cup. Whisk them really well to break up any lumps in the sugar.
- Next, add your honey. This is where it may get a little sticky as the honey and brown sugar tend to want to stay together. Just keep whisking it until it’s well combined.
- Once you feel like you’ve gotten all of the lumps out, add in your essential oils.
- Whisk everything together. If the coconut oil hardens too much and causes clumps, just put the glass measuring cup into a bowl of hot water, and mix well before adding your exfoliating brown sugar and honey facial mask to your squat mason jar.
- The mask will thicken and set up nicely once it sits in the jar, so don’t panic that it seems too runny. It won’t stay that way. When you add it to the jar, you will notice the layers are a bit separated, but that’s normal and it will improve as it thickens.
How To Use Your Exfoliating Face Scrub
- Remove the lid and stir well before using. Moisten your face and blot with a cloth, then apply the exfoliating brown sugar and honey facial scrub to your face and neck. Keep on for 15- 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
