Sugar scrubs are already great for your skin, but this Rose Sugar Scrub is even better for the skin than most. The recipe not only includes coconut oil, like I typically use in my scrubs, but also rose hip oil and rose absolute in a jojoba carrier oil. With this rose body scrub, you can nourish and heal your skin while smelling like roses!
This gentle rose body scrub will slough off dead skin cells and leave your skin soft and glowing.
Rose Sugar Scrub
This rose sugar scrub recipe has a delicate rose fragrance and is a great addition to your natural skin care routine. As red dyes can be staining, a rose colored mica was used to tint this scrub. The mica is also great for coloring your own soaps and for use in diy makeup and craft projects.
Of course, homemade rose sugar scrub makes a wonderful gift too. Such a pretty pink sugar scrub is an obvious choice for Valentine’s Day, but would be a perfect DIY Mother’s day gift or special birthday present as well. The delicate rose fragrance is more akin to walking past a rose bush in bloom, than being “perfumy”, so I believe most would like it. Why not make it a gift basket with some DIY Rose Bath Bombs or Rose Facial Spray (complete with free printable labels)
You may notice I used absolute rather than rose essential oil in this body scrub recipe. True essential oil from roses is prohibitively expensive. The absolute provides fresh real rose scent without the extreme cost.
Besides a cup of sugar, this is what you will need to make this homemade rose sugar scrub. Full recipe below.
