Brown Sugar Body Scrub

Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipe

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Cap full of pure vanilla (if you can find it, Mexican vanilla is the best!) *OR* a few drops of your favorite fragrance


* Mix brown and granulated sugars together with a fork. 

* With the same fork, stir in olive oil and then honey, followed by the vanilla.

* Put the mixture in a lidded bowl (Tupper or Gladware) for storage.

* For more fun, or travel, pack it into ice cube trays and have them set. Store the cubes as you would the normal mixture.

You CAN keep this in the fridge to have it last longer. On average, though, if the mixture is left out, it will last for about a week. The shelf life extends to about 10 days when kept in the fridge. 

The olive oil and honey will add a ton of moisture to your skin and the sugars are excellent gentle exfoliates. The pure vanilla (please DO NOT use vanilla extract) is just added in for fragrance. If you don't have sensitive skin, you can add a few drops of your favorite fragrance or essential oils to the mixture instead of the Mexican vanilla.
