To create the scrub, just mix together half a cup of coarse brown sugar with a tablespoon of honey, a little olive oil, and 1/4 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, then apply all over your body and rinse. The scrub not only smells delicious, but leaves your skin feeling ultra-smooth.
Oatmeal & Chamomile Face Scrub:--4 tbsp oats, tbsp almonds, 1 tbsp dried chamomile flower, 1 tbsp organic brown sugar, 2 tbsp greek yogurt---Blend all ingredients together in food processor, until you have a chunky hummus-like texture. Wet face, and rub onto face and neck. Let sit for 20 minutes and rinse off. I like to follow up with a nice moisturizer. Ahhhh.. yes. A lovely feeling.
Homemade Sugar Scrub (Christmas gift idea)...made it tonite! Very easy & I had all of the ingredients already on hand...there's no real measurements, so I just tested it out (on my hands) until I found the best results...my hands are very soft! I have little jars from the dollar store & I plan to make personalized labels, & dress them up w/ bows, ribbons, string, etc.....**Update : I make & use this All the time..I love it :) I've given it as an add-on gift to a friend already & she loved it too
