Make your own body scrub

This body scrub is something I have been meaning to make for a few years. How bad is that! Last night I felt the need for a body scrub so decided to finally make one.

It is so simple and there are so many ways you can vary the scent to suit you.

All you need is

1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar
a few drops of the scented oil of your choice (vanilla, lavender, rose etc...) or you can leave it out.

Simply mix everything together and store in a jar. To use, scoop some out and scrub away.

I love that my skin feels moisturised after using this scrub. Often I would feel extremely dry after a body scrub, but this one leaves my skin feeling exfoliated and soft.

I'm going to make another to keep at my kitchen sink. Sometimes after cutting up raw meat or mixing things with my hands it is nice to use a scrub to clean everything well.

This would make a great gift.
