Simple Sugar Scrub Formula

Simple Sugar Scrub Formula

This super-simple formula has been softening and nourishing skin for centuries.

It only calls for two ingredients, and the results will gently exfoliate dead skin cells, improve skin clarity and softness, and stimulate your glandular system.

You will glow from top to toe–a great way to get ready for the holidays!


1/2 cup sugar
Enough cold-pressed oil (olive, wheat germ, peanut, corn, or sunflower) to dampen the mixture

Gently massage this exfoliating scrub all over your body and face before you shower with a light soaping and rinse. Repeat once or twice a month.
