    • Brown Sugar Body Scrub

      Going to the spa is a luxury that many cannot afford, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home! This Brown sugar body scrub is an excellent skin-softening exfoliant. While sugar isn't particular good for you on the inside, it can certainly make your skin glow.

      You'll Need:



      Carefully combine oil, vitamin E and Essential oil in a bowl. Add sugar and mix well. Store in covered container.

      How to Use a Body Scrub:


      1. Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area you wish to scrub.
      2. Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1 minute. If you work too quickly you won't properly exfoliate.
      3. Be sure not to scour too hard or too long.
      4. If you want baby smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
      5. Body scrubs should never be used on the face.

      About the ingredients, Sweet almond and Jojoba oils can be found at most natural foods/health food stores, or online. Vitamin E oil can be derived from poking a hole in a vitamin E capsule (although you'll need a couple to get 10 drops). Be sure that you're using natural Essential oils, rather than Fragrance oils which contain fillers and can cause allergic reactions.

        Great easy recipe. I also like glycerine in place of the vit E. I save any glass jar (small pickle/pepper jars) for this type of recipe.

      Banana boxes, got them free from the store to use as moving boxes. Then re purposed into temporary book shelves until I could get proper ones.
