Home-made Gifts 2010 #2: Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipe
Saturday, 17 July 2010 | Admin
With the holiday season looming and the prospect of showing off more flesh becomingly increasingly scary, I realised that I hadn't shared the wonders of my brown sugar body scrub with you. If, like me you're 30 something and beginning to notice that your skin sin't quite so elastic and springy as it once was then you should definitely give it a go. It does a great job of exfoliating really gently as the sugar contains AHA's, but the olive oil leaves your skin really smooth and supersoft, it's gorgeous. Best of all, it uses just two ingredients (three if you're feeling flush) which you'll probably have in your kitchen store-cupboard already!
1 cup Soft Brown Sugar (not demerara)
Take a clean wide-necked jar and add your sugar to it
Add oil and stir well. You want to have a little excess oil floating on top as per the picture
Stir in a few drops of essential oil* of your choice - this is optional but makes it smell great
