How to Make Your Own Sugar Scrub
This recipe was adapted from a friend of mine that was so willing to share it with me. She uses vitamin E, but since I had aloe vera gel I used that instead. Both vitamin E and aloe have great benefits, but I would love to try this out with vitamin E as well. As for the essential oils, I have an aromatherapy book that I absolutely love and when I looked up foot care, rosemary was used in almost every oil combination so I decided to add it along with the lavender.
Homemade Sugar Scrub
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup almond oil
1/2 teaspoon aloe vera gel (or vitamin E)
5 drops of essential oil (I used lavender and rosemary)
Combine all ingredients. Store in airtight container. Use as need on hands or feet.
This is the second product I have made using the almond oil. I'm still trying to pinpoint the exact feeling the almond oil leaves and I have no other oils to compare it to. I don't dislike it but I'm not sure I LOVE it either ... it might just be that is different than what I am used to. :)
