Here’s a way to get gorgeous, smooth, glowing skin in a chemical-free way: make your own sugar scrub. Sugar scrubs gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, removing dry dead skin cells to reveal more vibrant, healthy and supple skin. Making your own body scrub is a simple way to save money while guaranteeing you’re using the most natural ingredients. The best part is most of the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen cabinet.

Simple sugar scrub:

1 c. regular or brown sugar

½ c. organic oil (sesame, almond, olive and grapeseed oil are all great)

A few drops of your favorite essential oils, like lavender, bergamont, eucalyptus or rose.

Place sugar in a bowl, slowly stir in oil and combine well. Store in a jar with an air tight lid.
