DIY: Brown Sugar Scrub

I went to Sephora yesterday to buy a brown sugar body scrub and it was $35.  Too expensive for my taste.  I looked at the ingredients and recognized only about 4 so I decided to make my own at home.  I had all the ingredients I needed except a canning jar which I bought at Sur La Table for a little over $3.  I tested the scrub last night during my bath and it worked like a charm leaving my skin super soft and smelling like lavender and I made it at half the price!

1. You will need: Brown sugar preferably raw (I didn’t have any so I mixed in some cane sugar), olive oil, and grapeseed oil.  I used lavender oil but you can use vanilla extract to make it smell nice.

2. I filled the jar about 3/4 the way with brown sugar.

3. Then I added the cane sugar.

4. I added 2 tablespoons each of the olive oil, grapeseed oil, and lavender oil and mixed to combine.

5. I got the pretty pink tags from Paper Presentation in New York.

6. Scrub a dub dub away!
