Lime Vanilla Sugar Scrubber

I am all about beautiful soft skin, I am sure you are too!  My girls and I have been making homemade sugar scrubs for about 2 years now and we just made a new recipe which is so perfect for this dry season. It smells great and leaves your skin smooth and soft.  Hope you try it and fall it love!

I found this cute vintage jar for $2....perfect!

Fresh delicious ingredients!

Lime Vanilla Sugar Scrub:

1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil
Juice from 2 limes
1/4 cup coconut
1 Tbsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together until scrub is soft and creamy.   Pour into a moisture resistant jar or container.  ( I keep mine in the shower).

This scrub makes a beautiful organic gift.  I like to make it extra special by adding some ribbon and a tag.  It is the little touches that make it unique to your style and personality.  Have fun with it and enjoy!

     Here are a few ingredients you could add to your scrubs that are also natural exfoliants:

Coffee Grounds
Orange Zest and Juice
Almond or Coconut Oil
Candy Cane Powder
Colored Sugar Crystals (makes it pretty and colorful)

With Hugs,
