I’m a sucker for a good sugar scrub. I love the feeling of super-soft, ultra exfoliated skin. Once I discovered I could make my own scrub at home, I was in exfoliation heaven. Check out this easy sugar scrub recipe below. Let me know what you think!


                                        Sweet and Spicy Brown Sugar Body Polish

      Recommended for all skin types except those with acne (use with care on sensitive and environmentally damaged skin).

    1 cup organic brown sugar
    1 cup white granulated sugar
    ¾ cup almond, soybeans, hazelnut, or macadamia nut base oil
    2 teaspoons cinnamon, powdered
    2 teaspoons ginger, powdered
    2 teaspoons nutmeg, powdered
    40 drops cardamom essential oil

    In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients except the essential oil. Using a whisk, blend ingredients thoroughly, making sure to break up any lumps of brown sugar or spice. Add the essential oil drop by drop, blending after each addition.

    Spoon into a storage container with a tight-fitting lid.

    Massage approximately ¼ to ½ cup of scrub onto pre-moistened skin using circular motions. Rinse.
