I really wanted to share a new way to slough off this last bit of winter based off of my A Spoonful of Sugar Scrub from January 2013. So this time, I came up with these Disney-inspired scent combinations to add to it.
Let’s get re-mixing together!
- 2 cups Sugar (I like Domino®, Florida Crystals®, and Sugar in the Raw®)
- 1 cup olive oil, organic if possible (I like Colavita®), or other carrier oil (You may use coconut oil if it is the unscented variety)
- 8-10 drops of your favorite brand of essential oil/extract/ food grade aromas in the Disney scent-inspired blends below
- Small spoon
- 1 or 2, 8-16 oz. glass containers (preferably air tight)
To make Disney scent-inspired blends (4-5 drops* of each essential oil, extract or aromas):
- Balsam Fir or Pine
- Champagne-style aroma
- Toasted Nut
- Sandalwood or Twig
(while not quite Rome Burning, this smells really nice together)
Mickey’s Ice Cream Bar
Add all ingredients in a non-reactive bowl and mix well to incorporate. *You may add as many drops or as little of the essential oils according to your taste. Store scrub in an air tight container for up to two weeks. Use a small spoon for your new sugar scrub. The sugar exfoliates the skin, while the olive oil moisturizers it, and the aromas will take you to the Happiest Place on Earth…for the moment, anyway.
To Use Scrub
Spoon out portions of the scrub for the different spots you want to target. Try not to over rub. Rinse well off your skin. Do not use on face or on areas with cuts.
I always keep some version I’ve made of these scrubs at my kitchen sink.
Use caution when using in the bathroom and clean your shower or bathtub thoroughly. The oil in the scrub will cause those surfaces to become very slippery.
