Today we will make a soapy body scrub that has the fragrance of strawberry. It foams a bit but does an excellent job cleaning and scrubbing the skin. It can be made with any scent and color you like.

To make this product, please follow the steps properly and make sure to use the correct quantities as indicated below. Also, ensure that the ingredients used are of good quality. You will end up with a great product.

Items Needed

  • White sugar
  • Oil color powder – The oil colors melt in oils
  • Shea butter oil – This is a core ingredient as it hydrates the skin
  • Strawberry essential oil
  • Transparent shower gel – Make sure it is transparent so that you can make it any color you want
  • Bowl

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

How To Use The Soapy Body Scrub

Using a popsicle stick, apply the scrub onto the skin and exfoliate. When you rinse it off, the skin will feel smooth and fresh!

In addition to exfoliating to remove dead skin cells, this scrub also foams up and cleans the body, leaving it well scented.
