DIY Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub
As much as we talk about growing healthy food for the body, we can also use the herbs and foods we grow for the skin. The herbs you grow in your garden - lavender, lemongrass, thyme - have fantastic relaxing and nourishing qualities that work well in skin care formulas.
There are endless possibilities in the world of home made beauty products, but here we’ll highlight just one, a personal favorite: the simple yet decadent Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub.
-¼ cup brown sugar
-¼ cup white sugar
-1.5 tbs oil (coconut, cocoa butter, sweet almond, olive oil, avocado oil are all good options)
-5-10 drops lavender essential oil
-¼ tsp vanilla extract
You can add additional exfoliants from your garden such as lavender leaves and seeds, borage, evening primrose, cleome flower seeds, and more!
