4. Peppermint Sugar Scrub Bars
As previously mentioned, sugar scrubs can be a little messy. Especially if you’re using them in the bathtub, more coarse scrubs can leave you feeling like you’re laying on a sandy beach. These Peppermint Sugar Scrub Bars address that problem just perfectly in my opinion.
The peppermint scent comes from an essential oil, which means that if you wanted to, you could swap out the peppermint oil for another one, like vanilla or lemon. These bars would be incredibly quick and efficient to use in the shower, and because they’re homemade and inexpensive, you don’t have to use them sparingly, like you might ones you bought from a store.
5. Calming Sugar Scrub
I love the sound of all the ingredients in this Calming Sugar Scrub. As soon as I saw it I wanted to make some for my mom, she’s always working herself off her feet, and I know that her favorite part of the week is a long soak in the bath on a Sunday evening.
A couple of my friends have been using ‘bath teabags’ recently, which are exactly what they sound like, large teabags specially made to be used in baths. I don’t know how I feel about that, but you do get some incredibly lovely and calming smelling teas, so I wouldn’t mind having an aspect of that in the water. The coconut oil in this recipe would leave your skin so nourished and smooth.
