{ Brown Sugar Body Scrub }

When I discovered this body scrub recipe that is so extremely easy and inexpensive to make, I knew that I had to share it with others.  For sometime now I have been sharing it as make-n-takes at Natural Garden Soaps events.  Everyone loves it, so today I decided to share it here on my blog.
This scrub is invigorating and a gentle moisturizing treatment.  Pure brown sugar blended with olive oil results in an entirely natural and stimulating exfoliation.  This fresh scrub with it’s restorative, antibacterial properties of sugar to bring you one of the sweetest home spa experiences ever.  Plus it smells so yummy like a Orange Creamsicle.
Orange Creamsicle
Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipe
⅔ Cup of Brown Sugar
⅓ Cup of Olive Oil
10 Drops of Vitamin E
5 Drops of Orange Essential Oil
5 Drops of Organic Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Honey, optional for dry skin
Mix olive oil, vitamin e, essential oil and extract in a jar.  Add brown sugar and mix well.

How To Use:
After you’ve washed up in the shower or tub, right before you step out, apply scrub on your skin and rub onto your skin in a circular motion.  It buffs away dead skin cells and leaves a new soft layer of skin.  Once you’ve scrubbed all over, rinse off any excess sugar.  Your left with soft, smooth and moisturized skin.  Can be used daily.  Caution: the oil in the sugar scrub can cause the tub or shower to become slippery.
Feel free to substitute any essential oils that you would like to use. You can also use jojoba oil, sweet almond oil or avocado oil as a base if you choose.  The sugar will separate a bit from the oil, but that’s normal, don’t add more, just stir it up a little every time you use it.  This scrubs make great holiday gifts.
What body scrub have you made at home?
