This simple recipe for the Sweet Vanilla Sugar Scrub is probably my favorite. Sugar scrubs are great for pampering yourself after a long day or even to give as an inexpensive but thoughtful gift. All you need are a few simple ingredients and 10 minutes!
What you need:
♥ White Granulated Sugar ~3/4 cup
♥ Brown Sugar ~ 1/4 cup
♥ Coconut Oil ~ 1/4 cup
♥ Vitamin E (optional) ~ two gel tabs (pierce and sqeeze the liquid into your mix)
♥ Jojoba Oil (optional) ~ 8 drops
♥your favorite vanilla essential oils or extract ~ 5-8 drops oil or 1 tsp of extract (this is personal preference… and remember that the more oil you use, the stronger the scent)
mix, mix, mix and store in a container of your choice – I just went with a simple mason jar.
For scent, I used aVanilla Orange scented oil and it makes the scrub smell a bit like pizzelle cookies! yummo!
