Made with love and lots of laughs by US! My Mom invited my sister and I over on the weekend for some girl time and indeed it was. We had a blast making home made body scrubs. We stopped by a local scrapbooking store to pick up some pretty ribbon and holiday add ons like the cute buttons and charms on the jars. It turns out, the recipes can be very simple! We made about three or four different kinds, some with aromatherapy and some without. I think my favorite was the brown sugar body scrub. It looks just as delicious as it smells.
Try it out ...
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar1 Tbsp Honey
Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Almond Oil (use as per your own preference. Obviously more will make the consistency more oily and less will make it less. I much prefer it with less!)
1/2 Tsp fresh lemon juice or lemon essential oil
* You could add another of your favorite essential oils if you would prefer, or add fresh orange zest instead! *
Add your brown sugar to a metal bowl and use a metal spoon for stirring (as wood or plastic absorb the oils if you use any). Add your desired oil (remember less is more). Stir in your honey to bring the polish together. Add your lemon juice or essential oil and that's it!
