Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Brown Sugar Body Scrub DIY

Brown Sugar Body Scrub DIY

I love sugar scrubs! They leave your skin feeling so soft, and they are fabulous at scraping off the dead skin. If you use body scrubs, you know they they can be quite expensive in the store. I like to make my own versions, and I think that they turn out even better than those pricey ones in the stores! We made candy cane sugar scrub and this brown sugar body scrub and passed them out as gifts last Christmas, and they were a huge hit. We will be passing them out again this year too!


Ingredients:

1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (I like to use almond oil too)
2 tablespoons honey

Directions:

Stir all together until all ingredients are completely mixed together. Easy as pie, and smells just as good :)

  5. If my Hubs sees any kind of a sugar scrub, he wants pampered. Right now I just don't have time. But this I bet does smell wonderful.

    1. Yes Dezzy, you do have to shower after that. I like to slather it on, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse off. Your skin will feel so soft and smell so good once out of the shower!

  9. I make the same thing, but I've used coconut oil. I should try olive oil next time.

    1. I have never tried coconut oil, but I hear really great things about it. I am going to give that a whirl for my next batch!

  10. These are sooo nice! Love how they exfoliate and leave your skin feeling soft. They're so easy to make too! And you can infuse different scents. Too fun!

  11. I remember your scrub from last year. I think these are so great for gift giving (the mailman and school teacher immediately come to mind).

  13. Yum, that is such a fun idea! (bookmarked).

    Thanks for the words of encouragement! I have been leaving many things on the 'back-burner' for far too long, december/christmas events, a sick relative and just life all came crashing around me last week, I'll just be doing a outfit post just once a week for a while, til things settle down. (if they do?) lol ♥

  15. A few years ago, a student made me a body scrub for Christmas. I enjoyed it and didn't even try to eat it.

  16. I think I will try this! I don't usually make my own, and just buy them when they are on super sale or clearance. I think Elliott would enjoy making this, though, to give out as gifts as well.

  18. I like sugar scrubs better than salt scrubs. I also make bath salts as gifts.
