Foaming DIY Salt and Sugar Body Scrub

DIY salt and sugar sugar scrub in a mason jar

You’d love this DIY salt and sugar body scrub if regular exfoliants are too abrasive for your skin.

And that’s because this homemade scrub contains only 1/3 cup of sugar and an equal part of baking soda.

Baking soda is way less abrasive compared to other natural exfoliants.

And combined with sugar and castile soap, you’d have a gentle foaming homemade exfoliant for your sensitive skin.

Also, this foaming DIY scrub is mildly scented with essential oil, which is optional.

So even if you don’t have essential oils or don’t like them, you can still make this cute little scrub.

Enough talking; let’s make a foaming DIY salt and sugar body scrub.

Foaming DIY salt and sugar scrub benefits

Making a DIY salt and sugar body scrub using liquid castile soap has many benefits for your skin.

Here are some of them:

Double benefits

The first thing I love and think is beneficial about this salt and sugar scrub is that it washes and exfoliates simultaneously.

And that’s because this scrub contains castile soap and natural exfoliants like baking soda and sugar.

Exfoliation

Salt and sugar are natural exfoliants that remove dead skin cells and unclog your pores, making skin smoother.

And regular exfoliation improves your skin’s texture and appearance.

Improved circulation

Naturally, exfoliating promotes blood flow to the top of the skin, which gives your skin a healthy glow.

Moisturizing benefits

Castile soap is gentle and doesn’t dry your skin, making it a great choice for all skin types.

And combined with sugar, it washes, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin.

Aromatherapy benefits

Adding rose essential oil and vanilla extract to this salt and sugar scrub is also therapeutic.

As rose essential oil relieves stress and helps you relax.

Also rose essential oil also calms inflammation on the skin.

Then vanilla extract helps improve your mood and also helps calm you down after a busy day.

Always do a patch test before using any skin care products, whether homemade or storebought.

Also, exfoliate moderately, as excessive exfoliation can irritate your skim.
