Brown Sugar Body Scrub

During the winter months, when your skin is dry and looks like that road map I have talked about...or a cotton field that has been scorched from too much heat, you can make your own mosturizing body scrub.  It is really easy and makes your skin feel like a million bucks.  I use about two cups of brown sugar (you can also use raw sugar, white sugar or a mixture of brown and white), and simply add in oils.  I usually add a about 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup of sweet almond oil, 1/4 cup of apricot kernel oil.  You can also use grapeseed oil and jojoba oil.  Mix it up and if it the consistency is too watery, add more sugar.  Wheat germ oil is also a good oil to use. It has a lot of vitamin E.  Then, I add a tsp. of honey and a little lemon juice.  To make it smell better, you can add 1 tbsp. of vanilla or any flavoring.  I love frankincense essential oil.  Love that smell.  Try it and see how great it makes your skin feel.
