I’ve shared a few of my homemade sugar scrub, homemade bath bomb, and homemade soap almond recipe with you, and today I’m sharing my recipe for Cherry Almond Sugar Scrub. I have some of these ingredients on hand, but the others I tend to order from Amazon because it’s convenient. I have a list of combinations I want to try and then order ingredients I can use in multiple things. I hope you enjoy this one, as winter draws to an end, my skin needs the exfoliating sugar scrubs provide!
Cherry Almond Sugar Scrub Materials:
● Cherry essential oil
● Almond extract
● 1 cup Granulated sugar
● ½ cup Jojoba oil
Mix together 1 cup of granulated sugar with ½ cup of jojoba oil in a bowl. If the mixture is too runny, add in a tad more sugar just a little at a time.
Add a little almond extract to your mixture in the bowl. If you plan to use a good bit of cherry essential oil, put in a little extra almond extract so that it is not overpowered by the cherry scent. I’ve used the almond essence as my main fragrance and then used cherry essence as a complimneting scent, but you can easily do this the other way round (i.e. make your cherry scent the more powerful fragrance).
The amount of scent really depends on how fragrant you’d like your sugar scrub to be and also how strong your essences are. There is no right or wrong with this simple recipe!
Pour in a few drops of cherry essential oil.
Mix well, and place in a container for gifting or use. Keep somewhere dry and cool and use within few weeks or so. There is really no expiry date on products like homemade sugar scrubs, but the oil will start to change colour and flavour after several months and it might not be as nicely fragrant as when you made it.
