Home Spa Treatment: Brown Sugar Body Scrub

I have written about the joys of sugar scrubs before, but here is a recipe to make your own.

Mix in a plastic bowl:
½ cup of raw turbinado sugar (or brown sugar)
¼ cup of honey
Add 3-4 drops of essential oil if you have some around.

Use scrub all over your body once you are in the shower. If you have bath gloves or a loofah use those for scrubbing. Focus a little extra on areas that tend to get dry like elbows and heels.

Wash the scrub away with water and then enjoy your sweet smelling, soft skin.

mmmm...add some vanilla.... I am so going to make that! It's, like, free (pretty much). That's the best kind of pampering!

It does sound like it would be good on toast!!!! But I have always wanted a perfume that smells like a bakery, do maybe if i rub some sugar into my skin I will. I do like sugar scrubs and I think I will try this on my very dry elbows.
