Sweet and Spicy Brown Sugar Body Polish

Sweet and Spicy Brown Sugar Body Polish

This scrub is a true sensory delight for the spice lover. The stimulating aroma subtly lingers long after the sugar has been rinsed away, and is wonderful for men and women alike. Especially seasonal with harvest spices including cinnamon, this is a particularly inviting scrub, providing effective exfoliation and deeply moisturizing smoothness to skin.

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
cup almond, soybeans, hazelnut, or macadamia nut 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 to cup of scrub onto pre-moistened skin using circular motions. Rinse.
