DIY Cherry Blossom Sugar Scrub

Ever since I discovered how to make body sugar scrub, I’ve been fairly obsessed. No more splurging on fancy scrubs when I can make them myself. And I’ll tell you, I’ve made some fabulously fancy scrubs. I mean, my body DESERVES them!

Not only that, it’s super economical and I love me some savings. Sometimes, you gotta respect yo’ money.

Here is my latest sugar scrub concoction, Cherry Blossom Sugar Scrub. SERIOUSLY.

Plus, if you’re a mommy (ME!), you’ll always have baby oil already at hand. Other oil options are coconut, olive, almond, avocado, and Vitamin e.

  7. Sounds amazingly fragrant! I would suggest why not Mineral Oil? It is also inexpensive, don’t need much, good for all baby rashes of all kinds, a major exterior moisturizer AND, a perfectly safe to eat as well–for baby safety I mean lol!

  11. Oh I love this. I am sitting looking at trees full of cherry blossoms now! But can you save this mixture? How long will it last?

    • Hi Crysta- I’ve kept mine for 3 days already in a closed container in the shower and it seems to be lasting fine. I think it’ll last for up to 1 week (or longer). You should make some for the lovely ladies in your life too! Have a great day! Kellie

      • Awesome. I have some canning jars that seal up really tight. My 13 year old daughter and I are making them up this weekend for each other.
