Homemade Sugar Scrub!

My skin has been so dry, I decided to make some 
homemade sugar scrub!
 This homemade recipe is so yummy you will want to eat it! LOL! The smell is heavenly.
It is good for all over the body but I especially 
made it for my face. It leaves it so soft!
This is all you need:

white sugar
brown sugar
olive oil
vanilla

Equal parts of sugar, mix together, 
add enough olive oil to the consistency you like  and 1 capful 
of vanilla. 
Put in a jar with a lid and enjoy! 


The sugar scrub makes great Christmas gifts too!

***Questions answered:

1. No it is not drying at all! Leaves skin moisturized and soft.

2. I have searched the Internet and have not found how long a sugar scrub lasts. One person wrote that they use it everyday and their scrub lated a month. I suggest you make small batches at a time. You will never know how long it lasts because you will use it up! That has been my case. I love, love, love it!

3. It does not "break out" my body or face. At this point in my life, I need all the oil I can get! :)

Oooooh! Looks good enough to eat, Maryjane! (but I won't!)

We just made some lavender salt rub yesterday...love it, too! Ours isn't wrapped up prettily like yours, though...we'll just have to change that!

Think we'll be making some of your sweet sugar scrub tomorrow...my girls will LOVE it!

Hope you're having a beautiful Sunday, my friend.

Great idea! I think I'll add this to my list of homemade products. How long does it keep in the jar?

BucksCountyFolkArt said...

Oh my gosh, are you sure it doesn't make you break out?! haha! I think I'd have a real hard time not taste-testing it!

Maryjane....

Susan said...

Your sugar scrubs sounds lovely, and I love your packaging!

Anita Kehn said...

I would love to try this. Your presentation is stunning! I am wondering like Daisy ~ how long does this keep. I'm thinking of gifts. All your crafts look so lovely.

Ali said...

It's not drying at all Maryjane? I have a hard time with scrubs because of that. I'm wondering if a few drops of essential oil might be nice in the mix too.

Happy Monday!

Lisa said...

Great recipe, Maryjane! My highschooler would love to make this for her friends.;)

GerryART said...

I'm more inclined to think of this recipe more as a topping for my muffins or biscuits.

I've never heard of a sugar scrub before last Monday - - and since that time I've heard it mentioned at least a half-dozen times.

Love your blog!

hugs
Gerry

deb said...

oh that looks wonderful and your presentation is awesome...great gift idea!!!! I have heard that olive oil really is good for the face!!!!! Im going to try this recipe!!!!!!!

Patricia said...

I copied the recipe down on a sticky note... I am going to make this for sure. Winter time and dry skin seem to go hand in hand... speaking of hands ~ I bet this might help with the dry hands that I've just glanced at and realize yet again that I have my Mothers skin. I'm making this for sure. TODAY!

Susan said...

Sorry, forget the scrub. Please tell me if you know the pattern of the china bowl you mixed it in. I have my great-great aunt's china in that pattern and have never known the name of it!
Oh, and I will try the scrub now!
Thanks,
Susan

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Maryjane, your facial scrub sounds good enough to eat!
Last Christmas I made sugar facial scrub and I used only white sugar, almond oil and olive oil. It was wonderful too! I haven't tried the brown sugar, will have to try that too!
Today Buck killed one of my chickens!!! I hate him today :(
Hugs, Ann

Hello Maryjane~I'm b-a-c-k to makin' my visits (finally)! I just wanted to take a minute at this season of renewed hope and gratitude to personally thank you for your visits and kind words, especially with the loss of my kitty Angel I wish I could convey to you how much your continued friendship means to me. You're so generous to share a big part of your hearts passion through your wonderful posts. I look forward to each and every visit. I've no doubt we've got a lot more blogging fun in store for us come this new year.

I took one look at your adorable trailer boutique setting and thought how cute and what fantastic weather. My second thought was...where on earth could you possibly have such wonderful sunshine in November, when most of us have lost any resemblance of sunny skies. Then I saw the poster that read Murrieta CA! I use to live in Hemet...where the sun shines in November. I'm in the Pacific Northwest now where our sunshine comes in a liquid form.


Sweet Wishes,
Sara
