Homemade Sugar Scrub

Have you ever been stopped by the ladies in the mall trying to sell super expensive sea salt to heal the dryness in your hands? I am always amazed at how much better my hands feel after they have scrubbed my hands and right now my hands are intolerably dry. In a last ditch effort to stop the cracking and bleeding I decided to try making my own sugar scrub…Homemade Sugar Scrub
My hands are still dry constantly, but the severity has lessened each time I use this sugar scrub because it scrubs all of the dead skin off and helps to prevent cracking. I use it twice a week at most and my hands feel amazing right after!

All you need is olive oil, granulated sugar, and essential oils of your choice (I used peppermint). Mix 3 cups of sugar with about 1 cup of olive oil and add several drops of essential oil which helps cover up the olive oil smell and adds a soothing touch to the scrub. Once it’s all mixed spoon it into containers that you can close tightly.

When you want to use it, just scoop out a tablespoon or two and rub it all over your hands. Rinse well after and feel the difference :). If you want to give this away as a gift you can put it in a mason jar and add pretty ribbons or labels.

Thank you Maybe Matilda, Stephanie Lynn, and Petit Elefant for your great sugar scrub recipes and recommendations!
