Becoming sugar aware has many benefits for our health and wellness. Our Facebook group has been evolving through the months and we are now on our fourth month of being sugar aware or sugar free. Our group has demonstrated our determination and commitment to a healthier lifestyle, however ditching sugar from our daily diets may have left us with a stock pile of this addictive sweet stuff in our cupboards and pantries.

Frances who has recently taken over the running of the group came up with this brilliant wellness solution. If we have stopped consuming it, then let us use it to nourish our bodies in a different way. Frances decided to make a very simple sugar scrub, which leaves your skin silky smooth and primed to absorb moisture, which is just what the Doctor ordered after the winter months. If you make a larger batch, you can make pretty labels for small jars and give them as gifts – the perfect sweet alternative gift for friends and family at Easter.


Half a cup of sugar
Quarter cup of coconut oil
10-15 drops of Eucalyptus oil (optional)


Mix all of the ingredients together.

If you are using course sugar, the scrub will have a harder texture alternatively you can give it a blast in the food processor for a softer scrub.

Place the ingredients in a small sterilized jars.
