DIY CBD Facial Scrubs

DIY beauty products have been trending for several years. With that trend, also comes incorporating CBD into them. These DIY CBD facial scrubs are easy to make with CBD tinctures that you already have on hand. If you have friends that also enjoy pampering their skin, these CBD facial scrubs make great gifts and, of course, they are great for a DIY spa day for a group of friends.

Why Use CBD Facial Scrubs?

Facial scrubs are great for your skin. Some scrub recipes target acne, some are exfoliating and others aim to help smooth your skin. The right combination of ingredients can help nourish and moisturize your skin.

If you have never used essential oils on your skin before, it’s best to take a small amount and rub it into your skin to ensure that you aren’t sensitive to it.

Essential oils can help refresh your skin, while smelling great and providing a little aromatherapy at the same time.

Making your own CBD facial scrubs is fun and easy. You get to control the ingredients and you can avoid putting chemicals on your face that could damage it.

Canna Trading Co. DIY CBD Facial Scrub Recipes

We hope you have a great time making these DIY facial scrub recipes. They make just enough for one use, but if you have some friends over or need to make gifts, they are easy to multiply. You can also change some of the essential oils mentioned to a different aroma if you wish. The essential oils mentioned in these recipes are due to their terpene profiles and benefits of those terpenes.

CBD Citrus Scrub

We love this CBD facial scrub recipe because it is simple and you likely already have the ingredients on hand. It is inexpensive and can be chilled before its application.

½ dropper Canna Trading Co. Organic Olive Oil Tincture

1 tablespoon mixed dried citrus peels

1 teaspoon raw honey

2 tablespoons of sour cream (you can also use Greek yogurt)

2 drops of sweet almond oil

2 drops of orange essential oil

Simply grind the dried citrus peels into a gravel-like consistency and add in your oils. Let this sit for about 5 minutes before adding the honey and sour cream or yogurt.

Mix well and massage into your skin.

This scrub works best if your skin is a little wet.

You don’t have to let this sit on your skin, but you can if you’d like. Rinse your face well and pat it dry.

Mix your liquids with the brown sugar first. Mixing it with the cocoa powder will leave you with clumps of cocoa powder. Once combined, then add the cocoa powder and mix it well until it’s a thick, dark brown paste.

Apply small amounts to one area of your face and neck at a time. Massage the scrub in using circular motions. Once your entire face and neck are covered, massage your whole face and neck area using circular motions for 1 minute. Thoroughly rinse your face and pat it dry. Warm water works best.
