Homemade Sugar Scrubs

Homemade sugar scrubs are fast and easy to make.
Use the scrub in the shower or bath for wonderfully smooth skin.

  • 2/3 cup sugar (white, brown, sucanat, coconut etc.)
  • 1/2 cup sweet almond oil or other unrefined oil
  • 1 vitamin E capsule
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
      Combine ingredients in a bowl. Store in a tight fitting jar. 

DIRECTIONS : scoop some of the scrub onto your hand and massage gently onto your skin for a minute then leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before rinsing. 

If you are the creative type you can make great gifts by decorating glass jars.
Here are some cool examples that i found online....enjoy!
