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!

How long will this stay fresh? What is the best storage method?

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 . . . .
