DIY Lavender Sugar Scrub
There seems to be this misconception that unless you bake bread or cakes often, you don’t need a Hamilton Beach Mixer. But the truth is, your Hamilton Beach Mixer can be used for much more than just mixing bread and cake dough!
Whether you want to make meat loaf, shredded pork or chicken, or even meringue, your Hamilton Beach Mixer can get the job done. With the easy to use, easy to adjust speeds and attachments, you will find that your Hamilton Beach Mixer can get the job done.
I recently had the chance to test out a Hamilton Beach Mixer, and I immediately noticed how streamline and easy the machine is. There is nothing overwhelming or hard to understand about it. I don’t feel like I need a tutorial to use it, and it isn’t intimidating. There are easy to read and manage dials for adjusting speed, and changing out the head is as easy as twisting and turning. You would think that with such few “bells and whistles” the machine isn’t powerful, but it is! It till serves so many uses and can handle all sorts of kitchen tasks.
To prove that the Hamilton Beach Mixer does more than just make bread and cake, I made my favorite sugar scrub recipe using my mixer. It only took me minutes, and the results were great! Here is how you can make your own Lavender Sugar Scrub using your Hamilton Beach Mixer.
DIY Lavender Sugar Scrub
- ¼ cup of coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of almond or safflower oil
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of dried lavender or 5-7 drops of lavender oil
1. Place all ingredients into the mixer. Use the whisk attachment and turn the ingredients at medium speed. If you notice any sticking or clumping, add a touch of oil directly into the bowl to help loosen them up.
2. Remove the sugar scrub and store in an air tight container.
3. To use your lavender sugar scrub, simply apply to the skin in circular motions. Rinse with warm water.
See how simple it was to make our own beauty product? Making your own sugar scrub can be just as easy! When you are done with your scrub just clean and rinse well and your Hamilton Beach Mixer is ready for its next task. The question is what will you do? Make a scrub? A dessert? A dip? Pulled pork? Chicken salad? Your Hamilton Beach Mixer is up for the task.
The Hamilton Beach Mixer is well built, affordable, and is easy to use! I would suggest anyone who is in search of a counter top mixer give it their consideration. The included dough hook, whisk, and other attachments such as the splatter guard make it a great value and a machine that is sure to cover all the bases.
