What to Eat Wednesday…. Sugar Body Scrub

This Week instead of something to eat I decided to share the recipe I received at the AquaTerra Spa last weekend.

A homemade, organic body treatment.

Ingredients

1/2 cup tubinado sugar (for a finer scrub use brown sugar)
10-15 drops Vanilla extract
2 dashes cinnamon
1/2 cup olive oil

Procedure

Mix Sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.  Add olive oil slowly (1 tbsp at a time) until desired consistency is reached.  Product should stick together but not be oily.  Drop in the vanilla and mix to complete.

Application

Gently rub the scrub in circles on the entire body (except face) to promote exfoliation. I recommend doing this in the shower or laying a sheet down on the floor before starting.   Rinse off with water.

Benefits

Brown sugar is a humectant, great for dry skin.  Fine texture helps to exfoliate without damaging the skin.  Olive oil is a great moisturizer for any skin type.
