Everyone needs a little TLC after the holidays. Winter leaves our skin feeling like an alligator’s without the bonus of basking in the sun for hours. My homemade Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub (recipe below) does the trick to get me feeling like it’s all going to be ok. The sun WILL come out
tomorrow in May.
To spread the love, I decided to make a big batch for some of the ladies in my life. Throw in a pair of warm, cozy socks and a bottle of nail polish and you look like the smartest, most thoughtful, soft-skinned girl on the block.
I was stoked to find the adorable bag tag available for download on Our Best Bites. Using the same colors, I made coordinating labels for the sugar scrub. You can download the sugar scrub labels here. Happy holidays to you!
Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups unpacked brown sugar
- 1 cup oil (Any type of oil will do. However, I recommend not using olive oil though since the scent is little strong.)
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- Vitamin E – optional (it works well to just break into a capsule of vitamin E and dump it out)
Directions: Mix the brown and granulated sugar together using a whisk or a fork to break up clumps. Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Scoop into jars. Seriously, it’s that easy.
