BROWN SUGAR HONEY SCRUB


I've always been hesitate towards sugar scrubs because I tend to have very sensitive skin, and anything that would dry me out wouldn't work! I've found great recipes for coffee, vanilla, and even coconut scrubs but I figured this brown sugar honey scrub would be the best one for my skin! When I made this it was perfect because I owned every ingredient already, which is one thing I love when I'm baking, or DIY-ing! With the coconut oil my skin becomes so soft, and the way it moisturizes my skin is the best. Coconut oil is pretty awesome for any use of beauty products; I use it on a daily basis for removing make-up, and healing/soothing my skin! It was so fun trying a sugar scrub for the first time, and I will definitely be keeping my eye out for some different ones to try!


BROWN SUGAR HONEY SCRUB
serving size - one small mason jar

Ingredients
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 tbsp of coconut oil
5 drops of honey
1 tsp of vanilla
1/4 tsp of cinnamon 

Directions 

1. Pour all the ingredients into a medium size bowl and stir thoroughly. To make it easier, I melted the coconut oil in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds, so that it becomes liquid and the more it can absorb through the mixture.

2. I put my mixture in a mason jar, because the lids work the best for me, but you can also but it in a jar with a air tight sealed lid, or a bowl with a lid. Scrub all over your body, and then rinse it off in the shower!
