Homemade Sugar Scrub Recipes

Want skin that GLOWS this summer but don't have or want to spend the sometimes massive dollars on commercial products? Try making your own sugar scrub. I just used up the last of my store bought sugar scrub and from now on, I'm going to start making my own. Not only is it cheaper but it's healthier; sans the dreaded preservatives! I'm going to try this recipe:

* 1 cup brown sugar
* 1/2 cup sweet almond oil
* a few drops of essential oil or fragrance body oil of choice
* some honey (this is optional but honey has loads of moisturizing properties so why not?)
* container to put it in (an old container or tupperware will do)

Mix together the oils and honey in your container. Add the brown sugar and mix it up. Viola! Note that you can tweek the consistency to your liking. So some like more oil than sugar and some like more sugar than oil. Play around with the proportions till you find the consistency that you like.

Here's another sugar scrub recipe:

* 1 cup of sugar
* 1/2 cup to 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil
* lemon juice (optional)
* few drops of essential oil or body fragrance oil (optional)

Instructions are the same as the brown sugar scrub.

I might try and make mine tonight. I'll post my results soon! And these are just some of the basic and very easy recipes. There are tons of other great recipes out there on the web. So go google them and try them out! If you know any other good recipes that work great for you, pleae share!
