homemade sugar scrub

anyone who knows me, knows that i love me some sugar scrub.  now that i’ve been on a budget, it’s been a little out of my price range.  it’s usually $20 for a smallish tub that i end up having to ration*.

so in the spirit of being more crafty, and also because i have sugar in my cabinet that i won’t be *eating* due to my weight loss attempts, i looked up how to make it myself..

holy crap is it EASY!!!

here’s the gist.

50% white sugar, 50% brown sugar.  mix and place in container (i used a glass storage container that normally goes in the fridge).

pour some sort of oil until the sugar is almost saturated (i used olive oil).

add a bit of vanilla extract or any type of essential oil.

mix it up a bit. 

voila.

my skin is SO soft.  for approximately $3.

now i know what to make for my clients next christmas!  if i can find cute packaging, i might try to sell on etsy. 





*and yell at j if he decides to use it!
