Cherry Body Scrub

I love making my bath and shower products, and this sugar scrub is one of my favorites yet. The sweet almond oil leaves my skin feeling so for when I use it.

This sugar scrub uses a cherry scent, but you could easily substitute the cherry blossom scent instead if you wanted to.

Is this a sugar scrub?

Yes. This cherry body scrub uses white granulated sugar to gently exfoliate your skin. A body scrub can be made with granulated sugar, salt, or Epsom salts.

Do body scrubs damage your skin?

No. A body scrub is a great way to remove dead skin cells and reveal the healthy skin underneath. If you have very sensitive skin, you may want to use a less abrasive sugar scrub.

Is this safe for any skin type?

Yes! This sugar scrub is safe for all skin types. It’s gentle enough to use every day if you’d like.

This body scrub uses fragrance oil. If you prefer, you can use essential oils instead. Sweet almond oil and coconut oil are both very healing for dry skin.

When exfoliating, you can use this body scrub to smooth your skin. Just scrub gently after wetting your skin with warm water to remove dead skin.

This sugar scrub works wonderfully on your legs before you shave. It lifts the hair away from your skin so you can shave. Just apply it to wet skin and scrub gently.

Can I use this with body wash?

Yes! You can use this sugar scrub with any soap. I like to use body scrubs in the shower to get the suds and then rinse off.

What can I use instead of sweet almond oil?

If you have a nut allergy or don’t have sweet almond oil on hand, you can use any other light oil like olive oil, grapeseed oil, or avocado oil. You can also use coconut oil, but it might change the consistency slightly.

Does this use red food coloring?

No, this uses red mica powder, which is slightly different. It’s optional, and you can leave it out. Your body scrub won’t have any color to it. It will still smell amazing!

Can I add Vitamin E oil?

Yes, you can add a few drops of Vitamin E oil when you mix the ingredients. It’s a wonderful addition to your skin, along with coconut oil.

How do you store a sugar scrub?

Sugar scrubs can be stored in an airtight container like a Mason jar. They will last for about six months.

Can I use this on my face?

No, this sugar scrub is not for use on your face. It’s too abrasive and could irritate. Try a gentle facial scrub instead if you need one.

Can I use this as a lip scrub?

No, do not use this sugar scrub as a lip scrub. It is too harsh and could damage your lips. Try a gentle lip scrub instead.
