Hey Sugar!

I always joke that I do not need much sugar in my coffee ’cause I’m sweet enough on my own. However true that may be, *grin* Until recently, I never thought about using sugar in ways other than in my coffee or baking etc.. Did you know that you can use sugar as a beauty aid? and a darn good one too!

Here is a simple recipe for a super great sugar scrub.

I will be carrying essential oils and other great items in my online store soon!

but for now, you’ll have to get them at a Whole Foods or other health food store near you. *sorry*

Sweet & Spicy Sugar Body Polish (Unisex)

The stimulating aroma subtly lingers long after the sugar has been rinsed away, wonderful for men and women alike! Want to “manscape” your fella? have him try this with you! A his & her spa day! This is a particularly inviting scrub, providing effective exfoliation and a deeply moisturizing smoothness to skin.

This sugar scrub is recommended for all skin types except those with acne (use with care on sensitive and environmentally damaged skin).

1 cup organic brown sugar
1 cup white granulated sugar
¾ cup almond base oil
2 teaspoons cinnamon, powdered
2 teaspoons ginger, powdered
2 teaspoons nutmeg, powdered
40 drops cardamom essential oil

In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients except the essential oil. Using a whisk, blend ingredients thoroughly, making sure to break up any lumps of brown sugar or spice. Add the essential oil drop by drop, blending after each addition.

Spoon into a storage container with a tight-fitting lid.

Massage approximately ¼ to ½ cup of scrub onto pre-moistened skin using circular motions. Rinse. Enjoy!

As always, if you try one of the recipes in the blog especially with your man. Please let me know by way of commenting on the related article. Thanks so much! Your feedback is golden!

All The Best To You!
