Happy December beauty friends! Today I am back with another do-it-yourself recipe, and this time it’s for your very own all-natural sugar body scrub. I’m totally giving these away as Christmas gifts this year. This is a great gift for men or women.

The Benefits: Using a body scrub is essential for the winter months. Cold weather is harsh on your skin and tends to make skin super flaky. What body scrub does is slough off the dead skin cells off the top layer of your skin and hydrate the new layer of skin underneath.

How to Use:  The best way to use a body scrub is in the shower on clean skin. The hot water will open up your pores and allow the scrub to penetrate further. Take a small amount with your hands and massage the sugar granules into your skin. Your legs and arms will thank you! Rinse off and pat dry with a towel. You probably won’t even need lotion afterwards.

You Will Need:

Mason Jars or something to put the scrub in (old spaghetti sauce jars work too)

Turbindo Sugar. It sounds difficult to find but it’s just really big granules of brown sugar and is sold at every grocery store on the planet. It’s in the cake aisle.

Almond Oil

Essential Oil of your choice. I chose Jasmine for my recipe because I wanted a flowery scent, but most people like Vanilla or Orange.

The Steps:

Combine 1 cup of Turbindo Sugar with 1/2 cup Almond Oil and 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil. Mix together and pour into the jars. Done!
