Brown Sugar Body Scrub


I gave out several jars of homemade Brown Sugar Body Scrub as Christmas gift this year. I've had requests to share the recipe. I admit that this is not my original recipe. My very crafty friend, Sonya Cantrell, made this for our annual ladies' retreat at church and I fell in love.
I have very dry skin, especially in the winter, and really had not found anything that helped long term...until this! I love using it because it is inexpensive, all natural, smells great, and it really does work. Enjoy!

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
Mix well

That's it! Really! I quadruple the recipe when making a large batch for gifts and it works great. I put mine is a classic mason jar, added a bit of ribbon, and printed some labels on a favorite scrapbooking paper.

Hope Lauren has a wonderful birthday Saturday. I heard that the Disney fairy (aka Bree) did some shopping for her.

This sounds great! Someone mentioned a coffe scrub too! Do we get to find out how that is made too?

Oh.... I bet this would feel really good to my daughter. She has severe exzema. I may try this tonight! Thanks!

You said you quadruple the recipe when making gifts. Can you tell me how many that yields?

I made some last night and wondered if anyone else has tried it. My oil kept separating from the sugar and pooling at the bottom. Also, it was pretty lumpy and I had a hard time getting the sugar smooth. Any ideas from those who have made it?
Also, any thoughts on using different kind of oils? Canola, Grapeseed, etc.
I did actually use it this morning and it made my skin feel so silky. Just trying to master the presentation. Thanks.
