More about Sugar Scrubs

Earlier this year I had a post regarding home made sugar scrubs.  (Can be found here:  https://jewelrybygamolie.wordpress.com/2012/05/05/ok-so-its-not-jewelry-8-2/) Since then I’ve been experimenting a little with the recipes.

I use one of the scrubs almost daily, and have almost eliminated the little bumps on my upper arms, and my scaly skin on my legs.  The honey lemon was just a little too sweet for me, so I tried eliminating most of the honey and adding more lemon.  Then as Fall came upon us, I wanted to update the vanilla for an autumn spice scent.   So here’s my updated recipes:

Lemon:

2 1/2 cups white sugar

1/2 cup oil

Juice of half a medium sized lemon

Zest of medium sized lemon

One small squirt honey

Vanilla spice:

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 cup oil

Sprinkling of cinnamon, amount depends on your personal preference.  I started small and worked up, and although I ended up liking a lot of cinnamon in mine, if I’m making one for someone else I hold back a little

You can also add nutmeg if it’s your preference.  I found it was too heavy and overpowered the cinnamon.

Enjoy!
