Brown Sugar Body Buff Recipe




A sugar scrub is a yummy way to exfoliate and soften your skin. They are easily made at home and best when used within a month. Feel free to substitute whatever scent you like best for what I have suggested!

Brown Sugar Body Buff
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup fine sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons of sunflower, jojoba, or sweet almond oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sweet orange essential oil
In a medium sized bowl, combine the sugar and salt and mix well. In a small bowl, mix all your wet ingredients together. Pour the oil and honey mixture over your dry ingredients and thoroughly mix. Store in a jar with a tight fitting lid until ready to use.

Use your delicious smelling scrub once or twice a week. Simply scoop a small amount into your hand and gently scrub using a circular motion, starting at your feet and working your way up. Avoid using on irritated or broken skin. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, use something other than a citrus oil as they make you more photo sensitive and you will sunburn easier.
Your tub or shower may get slippery when you use the scrub so be careful!
Enjoy!
