Benefits of using a regular sugar scrub

It’s cold outside and I have walked in from outside and feel like warming up and keeping dry inside my home. If this is your thought too, then you may like to try my Cinnamon Sugar Scrub. Here are some reasons why you should try some soon:

  • Sugar is a humectant, so it draws moisture to your skin.

  • Australian brown sugar has a nice grain size so it’s a perfect, gentle exfoliant

  • Very easy to apply while you have a bath or shower.

  • It helps to reduce ingrown hairs that you may experience after hair removal. Regular gentle exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells from the top layer of skin. Our skin changes all the time. It's good to revitalise your skin by using a regular sugar scrub.

  • It takes a few tablespoons per bath or shower to make your skin feel smooth, fresh and radiant. A small amount goes a long way to making your skin feel revitalised.

  • Use it after a hard days work in the garden. Massage away grime and dirt while you cleanse rough and dirty hands.

  • No nasty microbeads are in my Cinnamon Sugar Scrub to pollute and damage our waterways and fish life.

What goes into Cinnamon Sugar Scrub?

I use cosmetic grade Grapeseed and Wheatgerm oils in my Cinnamon Sugar Scrub. Both help to plump and moisturise skin. The germ or seed of cosmetic grade oils are like the heart of the botanical plant. It’s where new growth and life emerges from in the plant. Botanical oils concentrated nutrients become available to you in your skincare. Wheatgerm oil contains vitamin E and is high in omega chain fatty acids. Grapeseed oil is high in fatty acids, vitamins C and E and antioxidants.

Australian Brown Sugar

Glycolic Acid, found in sugar, is an AHA or alpha-hydroxy acid. AHA is reknown for its exfoliating properties and for smoothing the skin. It sounds a little frightening but in reality AHA’s can work wonders on skin. It occurs in nature and is safe to use. Sugar is gentle on skin and brightens skin tone. An effective exfoliant allows new cells to pop through. Old cells go to reveal plump skin.


Fine ground cinnamon provides gentle exfoliation while you bathe or shower. It has a warm, empowering smell. Imagine cinnamon toast! In Ayurvedic medicine cinnamon is a tonic for the heart. Cinnamon has antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It helps to:

  • prevent and fight skin infections including eczema

  • improve the quality and texture of the skin

Pure essential oils

My inspirational blend of essential oils includes:

  • Mandarin

  • Certified Organic Eucalyptus Radiata

  • Lemongrass

  • Cardamom and

  • Peppermint

I love to use a mix of uplifting essential oils in my Cinnamon Sugar Scrub. It’s true that essential oils are powerful. Only the recommended quantity goes in each pouch. It only takes a few drops and when the pouch is open a beautiful aroma will come to your senses. Essential oils are the essence of the fragrance of the plant.
