Brown Sugar Body Scrub

Even though we are only a few weeks into fall, the weather is definitely changing which always seems to have an affect on my skin. I often make my own body scrubs because it is very inexpensive, takes little time and I can control all of the ingredients that go into it. A heavy brown sugar scrub is perfect for this time of year. It not only smells amazing, but definitely softens my dry sensitive skin. This scrub is the perfect gift for a holiday or any occasion. I like to put it in a glass Weck jar, add a label and tie a ribbon around it. Pretty and simple!

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 strips vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Carefully slice vanilla lengthwise and scrape out all of the beans. Combine with the remaining ingredients in a small bowl then transfer to glass jar or airtight container. If you feel the scrub is too dry add more olive oil or raw coconut oil. I love these sticker labels from Rifle Paper Co. to add a bit of color to the top of the jar and I like to tie on a bright ribbon when giving it as a gift.
