If you are currently buying products with a ‘strawberry’ scent, you’re probably getting a toxic cocktail of endocrine disrupting chemicals (sorry to break it to you). Strawberry essential oil does not exist and there is nothing nice about artificial fragrance.
So this Strawberry Sugar Scrub recipe is my way of getting a lovely mild strawberry scent into a scrub, the healthy way! Freeze-dried strawberry is usually found in the dried fruit aisle of the supermarket, or you can try Luvaberry or The Rotten Fruit Box.

My Choice of Essential Oils
My favourite essential oil in this recipe is lime, but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget, or those that you already have in your collection. Read here for more information on essential oils.
