Sugar scrubs are a wonderful way to pamper yourself and smooth out those rough spots.  They’re even better to give as gifts without spending a ton.  These are the kind of thoughtful gifts I love!

The store bought varieties of sugar scrubs are lovely, they really are, but can be expensive or have questionable ingredients.  It’s easy to make your own in less than 10 minutes with a few simple natural ingredients you might already have in your pantry.  My daughters helped make this batch and couldn’t believe how easy it really is.

This Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub smells divine it also softens and moisturizes your skin beautifully.
