How To Make a Brown Sugar Body Scrub

DIY: A Brown Sugar Body Scrub Inspired by a Winter Cocktail

A few weeks ago my friend decided to make hot buttered rum on a whim. None of us had ever had it, and it sounded kind of gross... yet somehow appealing. (YumSugar has a recipe.) Is it good? It was a mixed bag on that one, but the batter itself served as my inspiration for this brown sugar scrub. Oh, and I just found out that National Hot Buttered Rum Day is this Saturday. Who knew? Yum even has a fun quiz all about this old school drink. Check out some pics below, along with my recipe, too.

Bella's Booze-Free Hot Buttered Rum Brown Sugar Body Scrub:

  • Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar; 1/4 cup almond oil (olive oil would work, too); a dash of ground cinnamon or cinnamon essential oil; and a dash of ground nutmeg or nutmeg essential oil. Apply. Optional: Add a dash of rum extract — Oh, I suppose you could get the real stuff out and mix up a little rum cocktail for yourself, too. Whee!

My friend mixing the batter.

The batter fresh off the KitchenAid.

The Bella in me sees some potential.

This sounds yummy.I got an amazing sugar scrub from my sister-in-law for the holidays, but I've had to store it in my freezer because the ants invaded our bathroom as soon as I opened it. Ugh! Bay Area Winters . . . .
