    You'll Need:

    • 2 cups brown sugar - OR - 1 cup brown sugar AND 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, powdered
    • 2 teaspoons ginger, powdered
    • 2 teaspoons nutmeg, powdered

    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

    4. If you want baby smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
    5. Body scrubs should
      never be used on the face.

      I also question as if you could use coconut oil. Where would you find enough almond oil to make a lot of gifts?

      I make these for my wife and daughter, (different types). You can use coconut oil in it's place. If you have an issue with really dry skin then coconut oil is better for your skin. I suffer from eczema and the coconut oil works for me... Hope this helps....
