Orange & Cardamom Body Scrub

‘Tis the season for indulgence, treat yourself or those you love with this Orange & Cardamom body scrub! Like most of our recipes, this is a simple one. If you have ever creamed sugar and butter you’re basically an expert already.


Orange is one of the best essential oils for skin care because it is packed full of antioxidants and Vitamin C, which help protect the skin from harmful environmental factors while reducing the appearance of aging. Orange essential oil can also help prevent skin blemishes, boost your immune system, and elevate your mood by reducing stress levels. Cardamom is known as a warming spice, and the essential oil’s warming effect promotes circulation and oxygenation. The anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties of Cardamom essential oil (and its warm spicy scent) make it the perfect partner to Orange essential oil in this recipe. Together these two essential oils can reduce the appearance of blemishes and redness, improve skin elasticity, and keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.


Here’s what you’ll need to make about an 8 oz jar. Feel free to double or even triple if making multiple jars as gifts.


-1 cup of sugar

-1/4 cup coconut oil

-1 tsp ground coffee

-20 drops Orange essential oil

-5-10 drops Cardamom essential oil


To make: Add ingredients into a bowl and “cream” the ingredients together with either a hand mixer or standing mixer. Using a rubber spatula put the finished scrub into your jars!


To use: Scoop a bit from the jar and scrub all over your body taking care to move in circular motions and spending extra time on all the places your skin could use a little extra love. Rise and feel the difference. 


Done. So simple. You and your loved ones are going to adore this delectable and indulgent bit of self care with ZERO calorie count!  


Please do not eat ;)
