Supplies Needed

  • Sugar
  • Shea Butter
  • Container

Step 1

Measure out a tablespoon of shea butter and a tablespoon of sugar.

Step 2

Slowly begin to add the sugar to the shea butter. You can use the whole tablespoon if you would like it grainier, but if you would like a smoother scrub, add less sugar.

Step 3

Mix the sugar into the shea butter. You may need to mash the butter with a fork to get a smoother consistency. Continue to mix the sugar and shea butter until everything is incorporated. Once you’re done mixing, you can enjoy your scrub!
