Soothing Aloe Vera & Orange Body Scrub
I just wanted to share this Aloe Vera & Sweet Orange Oil body scrub. I love making my own body scrub because it's easy, you have most of the ingredients at home and you can alter it the way you like it.
In my body scrub I used:
-Aloe Vera Gel (99%)
How to alter your scrub for your skin type, usage and how long you want it to last:
Use Aloe Vera Gel:
- Most Aloe Vera gel will have a preservative in them, use Aloe Vera Gel if you want your product to last longer.
-It's soothing, so use it on sensitive, sunburnt or skin you just shaved.
-If you don't want any oily residue on your skin after using the scrub, use a larger quantity of Aloe Vera. Otherwise, use more oil and you won't need to use body lotion afterward.
-If you want your bodyscrub to be more solid. Coconut Oil is solid at room temprature and melt when in contact with your skin.
-Use finer sugar if you want a more gentle scrub, like an everyday scrub or a face scrub.
-As a perfume, use any essential oil that you think smells nice like: Sweet Orange Oil. Peppermint Oil gives a cooling sensation and can feel refreshing, Lavender Essential Oil is calming and Tea Tree Oil is anti septic.
