Good Ol' Sugar Scrubs

One of my most popular posts tend to be my post on this sugar scrub here.

Although I did like that one with green tea in it, I prefer this classic recipe because it's so easy to tailor to whatever you like.  

I made some scrubs for a girls night with Amy and her sisters.  

After we started by soaking our hands with the mini bombs I'd made (check that out here) we gave our hands a thorough scrubbing with the coordinating scrubs I made.


I finally found a use for all these Elizabeth Arden containers my mom had been giving me!  


Interested in making your own?

Here we go!

You'll need:
1 cup  Sugar (or salt)
3 tsp.  Glycerin
1 tsp.  Honey
a few drops  Essential oils of choice (I used 2 combinations, cinnamon/clove and lemon/lime)
a few drops  Food coloring (optional)

Measure your sugar into a mid-sized bowl.

Add your glycerin and honey and mix well.


Add your essential oils & color.  Start with less than you think you need, you can always add more.
Cinnamon & Clove!

Lemon & Lime!

To use:
Wet hands, take a marble or two sized bit of scrub and rub in a circular motion all over both your hands. When you've lost the scrubbiness or you're just done, rinse well with clean water.
