DIY - Sweet Vanilla Sugar Scrub

This simple recipe for the Sweet Vanilla Sugar Scrub is probably my favorite. Sugar scrubs are great for pampering yourself after a long day or even to give as an inexpensive but thoughtful gift. All you need are a few simple ingredients and 10 minutes!

What you need:
 White Granulated Sugar ~3/4 cup
 Brown Sugar ~ 1/4 cup
 Coconut Oil ~ 1/4 cup
 Vitamin E (optional) ~ two gel tabs (pierce and sqeeze the liquid into your mix)
 Jojoba Oil (optional) ~ 8 drops
your favorite vanilla essential oils or extract ~ 5-8 drops oil or 1 tsp of extract (this is personal preference... and remember that the more oil you use, the stronger the scent)

mix, mix, mix and store in a container of your choice - I just went with a simple mason jar.
For scent, I used aVanilla Orange scented oil and it makes the scrub smell a bit like pizzelle cookies! yummo!

This recipe calls for Coconut and Jojoba Oils, which have so many great health benefits. To learn more about these oils, please check out the links below:
