Brown Sugar Scrub
Looking for a fresh facial or body scrub? Wait until you try this one! Smells wonderful! Be prepared for the kids to come running wanting the snack they smell you creating in the kitchen!
1 cup Regular Brown Sugar
1 cup Sugar in the Raw (any large granular type)
1 cup Granulated White Sugar
1 cup Olive Oil or Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
Combine the sugars together in a medium bowl. Pour the oil in the sugar mix a little at a time and work with the back of a spoon until the sugar is all damp and combined. Stir in vanilla. This scrub will look and feel like damp sand texture.
Another way to make is to place the sugars and vanilla in a food processor and gently pulse until blended. Slowly add the oil and continue to pulse just until combined.
You do not want to over work the scrub because you may end up dissolving the sugar in the oil.
Store in airtight container for up to a month.
Work 1 Tablespoon in your palms until easy to spread and then gently rub on face and neck. Rinse with warm water.
Place half a cup on a damp warm wash towel and scrub away in the shower. Rinse and shower as usual.
Note: If using in the shower, be careful as the oils may cause the shower or tub to be a little slick until the scrub has been washed down the drain.
Scrubs like this one make great jar or basket gifts. You can whip this up in minutes and place in a pretty bottle or container with a nice wash towel for a special treat.
