Homemade Sugar Scrub

Homemade natural beauty is where it’s at!  Not only are homemade natural beauty products great for your skin, but they’re easy on the wallet too.  I know you can easily go out and purchase wonderful sugar scrubs made with all-natural organic ingredients, but those are ridiculously expensive!  Why spend a fortune for somethings that’s easy to make with ingredients you probably already have sitting in your kitchen pantry?

Below you’ll find my favorite sugar scrub recipe.  For an added aromatherapy kick, try varying this recipe with 1 or 2 drops lemon grass essential oil in addition to the lavender.  I made the lavender + lemon grass version for a dear friend’s 21st birthday, and it was a hit with all the women at the party!
