Here are the directions for the Organic Sugar “GLIMMER” Body Scrub:
1 – 16oz Glass jar with tight fitting lid (make sure jar is very clean and thoroughly dry)
1/2 Cup Organic White Cane Sugar (or other larger grained sugar). I used FLorida Crystals brand Organic Sugar
1/2 Cup Organic Brown Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable Oil (Olive Oil can be substituted)
1 Vitamin E Capsule (acts as a perserative for the scrub)
1-2 Drops Essential Oil (we used Lavender and Sweet Orange)
Mix the sugar and vegetable oil thoroughly in a bowl. Gently cut open the Vitamin E capsule and squeeze the contents into the mixture. Add the esssential oil and mix again. Pour the mixture into your 16oz glass jar and seal the lid tightly. If this is to be used for a gift, create a label and/or instruction tag and decorate the lid with pretty paper and a ribbon.
Sugar Scrub Directions for use: Mix well before using as settling will occur! Scoop a teaspoon or two and gently massage in a circular motion onto wet skin. Leave on for 3-4 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Body Scrub Tips:
Vitamin E, while being good for your skin, is actually used as a preservative for this scrub
For a more exfoliating experience use all Organic Brown Cane Sugar
For a less exfoliating experience use all Organic White Cane Sugar
Change it up! Use a half-and-half mixture of Organic White Cane Sugar and Epsom Salts (found in any drug store or Wal-Mart)
