Dreamsicle Sugar Scrub




I'm not kidding. This scrub smells like a Dreamsicle and the best part--the fragrance is all natural. In fact, everything in this scrub is safe to eat.

So what's in it?  White sugar, the same kind that's in your cabinet;  almond oil, which is great for nourishing dry skin, and orange essential oil which gives it that yummy Dreamsicle smell and also promotes collagen production and increases blood flow to the skin.

Ready to make your own scrub? Here's what you need:

Ingredients
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. sweet almond oil (coconut, grapeseed and olive oil work great too)
10-15 drops orange essential oil




In a small mixing bowl, mix together sugar, almond oil and orange oil.




Spoon into half pint mason jar or other container with a lid.






Seal and use as needed (I use it about once a week). This scrub has a 3-month shelf life and makes a great gift. Enjoy!
