I love making my own exfoliating sugar scrubs because they are super easy to make, and very cost efficient. I could literally make dozens of jars of sugar scrub with just one bag of sugar and one bottle of carrier oil. Now that's pretty cheap! This cucumber mint sugar scrub is just one of my favorites because it smells so good!
I've seen a lot of questions when it comes to making this sugar scrub, so you might want to check out the following tips before you begin.
How do you make cucumber sugar and mint scrub?
It's actually pretty simple. You just dump all of the ingredients into a bowl, stir and pour them into an airtight container. Some people even use fresh cucumber and mint, and puree them in a blender. However, this recipe calls for fragrance and essential oils, rather than fresh ingredients.
How do you make scented sugar scrubs
Scented sugar scrubs are easy to make. Just combine sugar, a carrier oil, fragrances or scented oils, and soap colorant (if desired), then stir all of the ingredients together and pour into an airtight container.
How long does DIY sugar scrub last?
Homemade sugar scrubs generally last for about 2 months, possibly longer. Just don;t get any water in it, as that can cause your sugar scrub to spoil and grow mold.
