Today's Recipe: Shea Butter (Oree) And Brown Sugar...

If you have ever used sugar-based scrubs, then you already know how amazing it feels. Your skin looks younger, fresher and lovely.

So, todays post will be short and simple, plus you can easily whip up this recipe in the comfort of your homes.

So the ingredients for this simple scrub are  : Shea Butter + Brown Sugar
(You can also add a little bit of essential oils such as lavender, pure coconut oil, olive oil or even a drop of your massage oil).

The shea butter moisturises, while the brown sugar exfoliates!. 

I always choose brown sugar over white ones because they are grainier and more organic. White sugars are processed, however, this doesn't mean that white sugar is not ideal for making scrubs. I would advice to opt for white sugar as a second choice though. 

My Own Shea Butter Sugar Scrub!


Method: Slowly heat up your shea butter a bit to liquify it, then pure in your sugar into the melted shea butter, mix thoroughly and pour mixture into an air tight container. 


Shea butter lasts for a life time, so this mixture is not only cheap and easy to make but also long lasting.

    1. i know the raw shea butter has a funny smell, however u can opt for products that contain shaw butter. scrubs with shea butter are also effective for achieving beautiful skin and they smell nice too, so its a win-win!
