Are you feeling blue? Do you travel into the wild blue yonder once in a blue moon? Did you order the blue plate special out of the blue and think it deserves a blue ribbon? Does a blue sky make you talk until you’re blue in the face? Would a blue screen of death leave you saying “What in the blue blazes?!” Do the blue bloods with their blueprints and blue books make you want to phone those true blue boys in blue? Do you want me to stop talking about things that are blue and just tell you how to make this Very Blueberry Sugar Scrub already? Alright, alright, I’ll do what you want…just don’t leave me black-and-blue.
What You’ll Need to Make Very Blueberry Sugar Scrub:
- 1 cup cane sugar
- 1 cup freeze-dried blueberries
- 2 Tbsp. blue sugar sprinkles
- 3/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil (room temperature)
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
How to Make Very Blueberry Sugar Scrub:
You know what’s really weird about this whole thing? This blueberry sugar scrub ends up looking more purple than blue when you’re done with it, so that whole intro paragraph was totally unnecessary. But hey, that’s the Totally the Bomb way of life. To make your very purple blueberry sugar scrub, you’ll need to put the freeze-dried blueberries in a sealed Ziploc bag and crush them. Just, seriously, crush them. You can use a rolling pin, a meat tenderizer…whatever you usually like to use to smash things. Then, combine the cane sugar, blueberry dust, and blue sugar sprinkles in a small mixing bowl.
You should probably mix this up a little bit, but if you’re in a rebellious sort of mood, you don’t have to. For the recipe-followers among you: those are your dry ingredients. Your wet ingredients are the coconut oil and vanilla extract; add those two things and stir it up until you’ve got the perfect purple sugar scrub mixture.
If you want to get super fancy and give this to someone as a gift, you can garnish the completed blueberry sugar scrub with any of the freeze-dried blueberries that you didn’t smash to pieces. This is an awesome organic recipe that works great as both an exfoliant and as a moisturizer. Or as a really cute picture on your Instagram. You know, whatever you want to do with it.
