I discovered this concoction in a magazine in which C&H® Pure Cane Sugar was promoting their product with the homemade sugar scrub recipe. (I have combined this with hand-knitted socks and a rice heat therapy bag for the ultimate birthday gift.)
- 1 cup C&H® Pure Cane Sugar *
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- Oil from one vitamin E capsule
- 1-2 drops essential oil (e.g., lavender, orange, lemon)
- 1 16oz. glass container with a lid
Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Using a spatula, transfer the mix into the container and secure the lid. Contents will settle, mix before using. Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub onto your hands/feet/elbows and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. The scrub will tighten on your skin. Leave on for 3-4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing.
*You may want to add more sugar. I think the recipe could use 1/2 to 1 cup more. Add a little at a time until you reach the desired texture. The sugar scrub tags have only the original recipe.
