This does seem easy enough. I make scrubs too. I like to use coconut oil, I like the way it makes my skin feel after exfoliating. I leave mine in the bathroom and use on my hands in the morning and I don't have to put on hand moisturizer afterwards as my hands already feel soft, not dry. I guess I take the long way around though as I infuse my own oil by placing lime peel, orange peel or whatever (even lemon) in my oil in the sun for about three days and I don't use any essential oils. It is more natural. Here are some photos of my scrub.

Sugar scrub can be used on your face or other parts of your body. It is extremely softening, I've made other sugar scrubs before but this one seems very simple and I would like to try it out for sure.

So if you use 4 cups of sugar, you need 4 cups of almond oil - for some reason that does not sound right. Then is this a facial scrub, or ??? Please clarify the uses for this scrub. Thank you.

where's the recipe for sugar scrub all i got was a salad recipe from tyler florence
