I love fall, but what I don’t love is dry, dull skin.
As soon as the leaves begin to turn, I always find myself reaching for my favorite body scrubs to help keep my skin smooth. This easy DIY orange clove sugar scrub is so simple to whip up and the scent will have you dreaming of the holiday season!
Make Your Own Orange Clove Sugar Scrub
Smell is arguably the most powerful of our five senses. Certain scents can transport you to a different time or place, and the combination of warm orange and cloves takes me to a warm and cozy place in my memories.
I am just totally in love the sweet and citrusy aroma of oranges so it just makes sense to utilize this scent profile in a luxurious body scrub recipe.
While I’m not the most girlie-girl you’ll ever meet (no huge collection of shoes here), I do have my beauty rituals that I can’t live without, and body scrubs are at the top of my must-have list.
I do buy quite a few body scrubs throughout the year, but I also love how easy it is to make your own at home using sugar, coconut oil and some essential oils. In fact, if you buy some of these cute little mason jars you can even make sugar scrubs like this one as gifts for your friends and family during the holiday season!
Sugar scrub recipes are typically quite easy to follow and this orange clove sugar scrub is no exception. If you don’t already have a collection of essential oils at home, you can easily pick up the ones you want to work with on Amazon.
Essential oils are so incredibly versatile and you’ll only need to use a little to make your own DIY sugar scrubs at home!
I also love including coconut oil in my sugar scrub recipes. Coconut oil is so rich and moisturizing on the skin, which is exactly what you need as you buff away those dull, dead skin cells. I adore how soft and smooth this orange clove sugar scrub leaves my skin.
Be sure to pay special attention to your knees and elbows when using this scrub. Rub the sugar scrub in small circles on those tough, dry-skin areas to help reveal softer and more radiant skin beneath.
After your bath or shower you can always follow up with a bit more organic coconut oil as a little extra boost of moisture to help keep your skin supple through those drying fall and winter months.
Of course, you don’t have to wait until fall to make this easy diy sugar scrub recipe! This scent combination is one of my favorites any time of the year.
- Add ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine. Scoop into a mason jar. Use within 2 to 3 months. This DIY sugar scrub makes a great holiday gift!
