Sugar Scrub Love!

Before Christmas I wanted to make my friends and family sugar scrubs, but I ended up running out of time. Well today is the day! I made my first sugar scrubs ever! I'm very happy with the way they came out.



Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub

1 1/2 C. Sugar
1/4 C. Turbinado Sugar
1 C. Pure Vegetable Oil
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Mix both sugar and turbinado sugar together in a bowl. Next add the oil and mix until all of the sugar mixture has been saturated.

** Don't be concerned about the sugar and oil being completely mixed. It is hard to keep the oil and sugar together without it separating. **

After you've mixed the sugars and oil together, add your cinnamon and vanilla extract. Once everything is mixed evenly, scoop into jars. I used half pint jars and was able to fill two completely with a spoonful left over.


Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Scrub
1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1/4 C. Sugar
1/4 C. Turbinado Sugar
1 C. Pure Vegetable Oil
2 tsp. Cinnamon
First mix all of your sugars together in your bowl. After they've been completely mixed add a cup of pure vegetable oil. After all of the sugar mixture has been saturated with your oil, add your cinnamon.
The cinnamon will give your scrub a very dark color!

With this scrub I ended up running out of brown sugar so I added some plain sugar to the mixture. If you'd like to just use brown sugar just go ahead and replace the 1/4 C. of white sugar with brown.

One other thing, I found that the brown sugar was hard to mix with the oil. Be patient and keep stirring! If need be add more oil if you feel that there is not enough.

Happy Scrubbing!
