>So this time I made a lavender and chamomile sugar scrub because I am obsessed with lavender and chamomile tea at the moment.
I am also thinking of scrubs that would make great homemade gifts with the Holidays around the corner. I think lavender and chamomile would be pretty popular with most folks.
What You Need:
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Oil of Choice (I used Grapeseed, but Olive Oil or Coconut Oil will also work)
5-10 drops of Lavender Essential oil
1 Bag of Lavender & Chamomile Tea (not brewed)
How much you need will also depend on how much you want to make. The quantity above filled the small/medium size jar you see in the photos. It will also depend on the texture you prefer. If you like a dry scrub, then use less oil. If you prefer a wet scrub, then use more oil.
Add your sugar to a large mixing bowl.
Then add oil to the sugar and mix.
Add the essential oil. How much will be largely personal preference. I did about 5-6 drops.
OKAY…let’s take a moment to talk about this tea. Doesn’t it look amazing. It is quite fancy. 🙂 My FAVORITE tea is the Harney and Sons Yellow and Blue Tea. It is a blend of chamomile, lavender and corn flowers. It is divine!
The tea comes in a great tin- includes 20 tea bags. (I use each tea bag to make 2 cups). You can grab it on Amazon for under $9 currently as an add on item. (Of course the price and availability can change at anytime without notice. By the way that is my affiliate link.)
…and back to the scrub. Just open a sachet and add the contents to your sugar and oil mixture.
Gently fold in and mix the tea into the sugar.
Add to a pretty jar and you are done!
