Do-it-yourself Raw Sugar Scrub

I love body scrubs because they leave my skin feeling so smooth and soft! This is a great “recipe” for a do-it-yourself scrub that you can make in the comfort of your own kitchen! A gentle rub with this will help you unwind and relax while helping rid the body of excess fluid. Give it a try! It’s from a fabulous book called Natural Beauty at Home. Love it!

Do-it-Youself Raw Sugar Scrub

  • 1 C raw sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C walnut oil or light oil
  • 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil (I sometimes use kukui nut oil)

Mix together all the ingredients in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Spoon into a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid. Massage a Tbsp. or two over your body to gently exfoliate and moisterize your skin. Store any remaining scrub in a cool dry, location. You may need to stir the product between uses.
