    • Brown Sugar Body Scrub

      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.

        I make my own and it leaves your skin feeling awesome, I use coconut oil instead

      Re: Uses for empty 2-liter bottles?

      I had forgotten about all these re-uses. Thanks for the reminders!

      I also remember seeing a 3-liter size for store brands. The unique feature of this size was a larger neck and mouth. However,...

      Re: How to hang necklaces, rings and jewelry.

      Hang a bit of ribbon from a tack and put the earrings through it, or put a saucer where you remove them - saucer works for rings too.

      Re: Uses for empty 2-liter bottles?

      Wilbe, Great minds think alike! I do the same thing. You can buy a set of 3 funnels at "the dollar tree" store. They come in 3 different sizes and make filling the bottles a breeze. I also wash out...
