Ginger-Lime Brown Sugar Scrub DIY recipe

Ginger Lime Scrub

This Ginger-Lime Brown Sugar Scrub is super easy to make, and also makes a great gift! This scrub helps to exfoliate and soften your skin during fall & winter months. For best results, use one to two times a week on hands, feet, legs, or arms.

If you don’t love the Ginger Lime scent, omit those and add your favorite dōTERRA oils.

Ingredients:

¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup turbinado sugar
½ cup dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
10 drops Lime oil
5 drops Ginger oil

Note: Turbinado sugar is a large grained sugar that helps with deep exfoliation. If you don’t have turbinado sugar, you can use all brown sugar.

Instructions:

Combine brown sugar, turbinado sugar, FCO and essential oils in bowl.
Stir until well combined.
Store in airtight container.

To use, apply a small amount to hands and scrub for 30 seconds or until sugar dissolves. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Delicious!

Essential oils for dogs? Yes please!

Lexi at 4 months

This is Lexi, our 4 month old Golden Lab/Border Collie mix, and she came with a raging case of worms… you know, those gross little white things that look like rice when they dry out? Yeah, those.

I did my research and saw that dōTERRA DigestZen oil has several compounds that help with all sorts of digestive things, including ginger and fennel oil, and it’s safe for dogs. I applied 2-3 drops on her tummy and rubbed it in… I did this twice, 2 days apart.

Results? Lots of worms came out, and they were alive – awesome. And now, I’m not seeing any worms in her poo. Worms be gone. This stuff works!

She has a vet appointment on Monday, and I will definitely be bringing samples to the vet. I think it’s super important that we use non-toxic ways to help our pets stay healthy and happy.

When she gets going in ‘crazy puppy mode’, running around and chomping on things, I like to calm her down with a little Cedarwood and Lavender on her baby paws, and I also put a few drops on her bed. She sleeps through the night now too! Heaven for me!

Love this stuff…

Have an amazing day! I know I will… so grateful for my cute little puppy!
