Delightful Frankincense & Wild Orange Sugar Scrub

delightful frankincense & wild orange sugar scrub

Last week I shared my Ginger-Lime Coconut Body Scrub and this week I have another one for you! I think this is my new favorite scrub…it’s a great one to start your day with. Frankincense and Wild Orange are wonderful together and create a fresh, warm, woodsy-citrusy scent. See, it’s even inspired me to make up words! Woodsy-citrusy?

Plus? Frankincense and Wild Orange have all kinds of amazing benefits:

Frankincense:

  • anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, and immune stimulant
  • helps prevent aging (so, perfect for use in skin care products)
  • helps improve concentration
  • eases impatience and irritability, helps one to have a better attitude (see, perfect for the morning!)

Wild Orange:

  • helps with anxiety
  • helps brighten dull, oily complexion
  • soothes muscle soreness
  • calming and uplifting

This scrub would make the perfect gift for the women in your life, and it’s super easy to make.

Delightful Frankincense & Wild Orange Sugar Scrub

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup + sweet almond oil (can also use grapeseed oil, olive oil, safflower oil, jojoba oil, etc.)
  • 6 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 8 drops wild orange essential oil

Instructions: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. I usually start with 1/2 a cup oil and add more as needed to reach the consistency I like.

Directions for use: Use 1-2 times a week on wet skin in shower. Scrub in a circular motion on skin, paying special attention to dry areas like elbows. Rinse off. No need to follow with moisturizer because your skin will be soft and moisturized.

* Careful! This makes the floor of your shower slippery!

These are the supplies I use:
