Strawberry Sugar Scrub | Completely chemical-free, homemade strawberry sugar scrub is a wonderful sensory experience, reminiscent of summer, shortcakes and daiquiris. (Just what you need in the dead of winter, am I right?) | WildernessFamilyNaturals.com

Sugar scrubs are one of my favorite little pleasures.

I feel that my skin can breathe better after a nice buffing. Plus any moisturizer, like this lovely whipped body butter, absorbs so much easier too!

Strawberries are full of vitamin C, the nutrient that fights oxidation keeping skin nice and supple. Vitamin C also helps with collagen production (source), helping us to soften and even delay those unwanted wrinkles.

I love fresh strawberries, but they contain a lot of water, making it impossible to incorporate them into a scrub for fear of quick spoiling. That’s why WFN’s Freeze-Dried Strawberries are a perfect solution! We can make a scrub with beautiful, natural strawberry aroma and an unlimited shelf life.

Strawberry sugar scrub is in a category of its own — a wonderful sensory experience, reminiscent of summer, shortcakes, and daiquiris. (Just what you need in the dead of winter, am I right?)

To top it off, it’s completely natural and void of synthetic ingredients. Living in a modern world, we experience enough encounters with toxic substances. Anytime I can make even a slight adjustment to using simple ingredients in my skin care and diet, I consider it my little personal victory.

Would you like to treat your skin with this lovely Strawberry Sugar Scrub?

Strawberry Sugar Scrub

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a coffee grinder, process freeze-dried strawberries to powder in 3-4 batches.
  2. In a bowl, whisk powdered strawberries with sugar until well combined.
  3. Add vegetable glycerin (or olive oil) and lime essential oil; mix with a spoon or your hands. If you like your scrub to be more moist, add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of glycerin or oil.
Recipe Notes

If you use olive oil, the scrub will smell like olive oil initially, but it will dissipate within a day, and only strawberry fragrance will remain.

Glycerin makes scrub that's on the drier side, while olive oil yields more moist and oily scrub.
