One of my favorite comfort scents is chamomile. The sunny, apple-like aroma of this flowering herb always seems to cheer my up. In cooking, chamomile loves being paired with honey and lemon. This sugar scrub was inspired by that classic combination. In keeping with the tea theme, I used Camellia Seed Oil as the main ingredient in this scrub. Camellia Seed Oil is made from the same plant from which white, green, and black tea are harvested. The addition of honey granules boosts the cleansing and moisturizing property of this scrub, and adds a hint of its sweet, characteristic scent.
Honey Chamomile Sugar Scrub
Makes about 4 ounces
- 3/4 cup Demerara Sugar
- 2 ounces Camellia Seed Oil
- 1 tablespoon Honey Granules
- 20 drops Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
- 5 drops Organic Lemon Essential Oil

Combine the Demerara Sugar and Honey Granules in a small mixing bowl. Add the Camellia Seed Oil followed bythe Essential Oils and Grapefruit Seed Extract. Stir well, then transfer to a clean jar.
Usage & Packaging
This scrub will look great in our PET Jars. I like the pack my sugar scrubs in single serving, 2 ounce jars. This helps encourage folks to use up the entire scrub at once, avoiding issues with long term storage and contamination.
