Sugar Scrub Recipes

I just received a gift from my friend Irene in Kansas.
It's a wonderful sugar scrub
scented with lavender essential oil.

It smells and feels so good.
 I sure enjoy using gifts like this.
Sugar scrub is something I used to make,
when I began making soap years ago.
It's been many years since I've made scrubs,
so this is really a treat.
Irene put it in a pretty jar with a domed lid
and even added in a stir stick.
Sometimes the oil will rise to the surface,
and has to be stirred before using.
I don't know how she made this specific scrub,
but it is a very pretty color isn't it.

I found my old recipe for a brown sugar scrub,
 for you to try if you want...
1. equal parts white sugar and brown sugar,
enough to fill the container(s) you put it in.
2. olive oil, enough to saturate the sugar mix really well.
3. essential oil of choice
 or even vanilla or almond extract is nice for scent
4. Put it in a jar and add a pretty label.
5. Enjoy yourself or give as a gift.

This type of spa product should be used on damp skin.
It only takes a little bit to moisturize and exfoliate.

Try some different spa products of your own.
Here's a good link for 14 different scrubs,
and really cute ideas on packaging.
You will be surprised how inexpensive they are to make,
and it's another way to.....

Savor the Day!

I've actually saved two of my L'oreal jars because the labels peel off nicely and they will be great to put a sugar scrub in -- it's been on my list of things to try but just haven't done so yet. Brown sugar is a luxury to find here so I would stick with white sugar which can be found in abundance. Hope you are having a great day. Blessings, Tammy
