Pinterest strikes again! Through it, I scoured around for some gift ideas since the holiday is just around the corner. One of the things I found were recipes on home-made sugar scrub. Well, after looking at about twenty different recipes, I decided to try my hands at it. It came out good, and it seems to agree with my skin. I have to say, the coffee do dominate the smell, so I ended up putting in more drops of the essential oil. I am pleased by the result :D My skin feels so soft!
Coffee and Sugar Scrub
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup coffee ground
1/2 cup of grape seed oil (or olive oil)
1-2 tablespoon honey
10-20 drops of essential oil (I used Cinnamon Cassia — you can use less than the suggested amount depending how much scent you want)
