The Best Herbal Infused Body Scrubs

Posted on September 03 2021

 

Are you taking care of your precious skin? As our largest organ, skin is our first layer of defense against sun damage, bacteria and other toxins. As such, you need to ensure you’re giving it much-needed TLC on a regular basis. You may have already seen our Best DIY Infused Face Masks to Try This Summer, but now we’re taking on a bigger challenge. Meet your new favorite herbal-infused body scrubs.


Treat Your Skin With Infused Botanicals

Keep your skin clean and clear the rest of summer by backing it with an extra layer of protection. Each of these body scrubs can be created with the assistance of our botanical infuser to give them an extra boost. As we noted in our face masks blog, decarboxylation will be key in crafting these botanical infusions. If you’re thinking about purchasing our botanical infuser to aid in your own DIY body scrubs, consider scooping our herbal infuser and decarb bags bundle. These smell-proof bags are perfect for decarboxylating your herbs properly, and they act as a great means of storage if you’re making a little extra. This will also ensure you have all the tools you need to make the greatest impact on your skin.

To pack a truly herbal punch, use our botanical infuser to create infusion ready cannabidiol (CBD) oil. Though many of the recipes choose a specific oil for use, oil type is optional based on your judgement. If you are in need of the best selection for your skin, we are here to help. If you are typically oily and acne prone, jojoba oil makes a terrific option to help your skin breathe. For those with dry skin, use coconut oil to provide plentiful moisture and add a warm glow. If you have normal to dry skin, olive oil is a happy medium.

Before we get started, it’s important to note each of these excellent concoctions can be beneficial for your skin, but the various ingredients need additional research to get a full understanding of how they can best help you. Furthermore, it is vital that you avoid getting water into any of these products, as it could lead to mold. Finally, remember to do a patch test on a small area of your skin before using any of these to ensure you don’t have a negative reaction.

Now, let’s dive into some high-quality infused self-care!  Herbal Infused Face Mask Recipes


Infused Coffee & Vanilla Scrub
2 tbs infused olive oil
¼ cup coffee
¼ cup brown sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract


infused coffee and vanilla body scrub for dry skin


Dreaming of the coffee shop? Try this infused coffee & vanilla body scrub. Rich in antioxidants, vanilla can support skin health by keeping your skin free of toxins. Meanwhile, coffee could assist in fighting inflammation and acts as an excellent exfoliator due to the grit of the beans. To create, blend your herbal-infused olive oil with your coffee, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Once mixed together, apply a small amount and scrub in a circular motion for about 30 seconds. This will help get rid of build-up, leaving you glowing and rejuvenated. Use 2-3 times a week for optimal results.


Infused Grapefruit Scrub
½ cup melted infused coconut oil
10-15 drops grapefruit essential oil
1 cup granulated sugar

If you love the smell of something sweet, take this grapefruit body scrub for a test drive. Grapefruit essential oil has been thought to help fight acne, while sugar will gently exfoliate your skin and infused coconut oil moisturizes. Be sure to use this mixture at night, as grapefruit is photosensitive, meaning it could react when UV rays hit your skin. To create, mix your ingredients together and apply. Allow the body scrub to sit for a few minutes. Then, rinse and store for future use.


Infused Peppermint Scrub
½ Tbs peppermint extract
¼ cup melted infused coconut oil
¾ cup sugar

Rinse with warm water and pat dry.


Easy Infused Salt Scrub
1 cup Himalayan salt
½ cup infused jojoba oil
10-15 drops lavender essential oil

If you’re looking for a low-stress body scrub recipe, the infused salt scrub is a great option to try. The Himalayan salt will help to unclog pores and reduce inflammation, buffing away dead skin and leaving you with a healthy exfoliated glow. To concoct this recipe, pour your Himalayan salt into a bowl. Then, add your infused jojoba oil until you reach a ratio that feels best. Apply to your body on particularly tough areas like the soles of your feet and knees. Scrub in gentle motions before rinsing away. Follow up with a moisturizer afterward. Do not use more than once a week, as it can be tough on sensitive skin.

The infused coconut & cinnamon scrub is also a great option as a hand scrub.

Brown sugar is your go-to for gentle exfoliation. Less abrasive than granulated sugar, use brown sugar to heal sensitive skin.

Use this mixture 2-3 times per week.
