Homemade Sugar Scrub Exfoliator



This Homemade Sugar Scrub Exfoliator is perfect to get your skin ready for the summer and get rid of dead skin cells. I love ginger and it acts as an anti-inflammatory. It helps to decrease redness and energize your skin. Who doesn’t want tighter, more youthful skin? This homemade sugar scrub is perfect to give as a gift or keep for yourself! You can also change up the essential oils and use something different than me. I love the smell of lemon and it’s so uplifting! I like using DoTerra Essential oils because they are great quality and really work! I’m not a consultant, and I find the best prices on Amazon for DoTerra Oils!
