DIY body scrub

You want 1 part oil to 2 parts sugar (Brown or White).

You can use any kind of oil: Canola, olive, coconut even baby.

Then add a few tsps.. or drops of scented oils, vanilla or almond extract, citrus juice like lemon, grapefruit or orange.

Lastly, totally optional, you can add a dash or two of: honey, cinnamon, ginger etc. to give it color and scent!

Stir gently and well then add to jars.

Jars were purchased at Giant Eagle and I had the little gingerbread people and trees at home in my craft box.

So easy, very economical and remember better to give sugar that can be used to beautify your skin instead of wrecking it!!!

Happy Holidays!


1 cup sugar
