A recipe for homemade body scrub - smells amazing, and a great gift idea!


1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup pure cane sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
¾ cup almond oil


1. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, can sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg until thoroughly blended. Make sure you break up any clumps from the brown sugar.

2. Stir in the almond oil, making sure that all of the dry ingredients have been moistened.

3. Spoon the mixture into a 16-ounce jar with lid. Tie with a ribbon and, if desired, add a gift tag with instructions:

"Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub on your hands and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. The scrub will tighten on your skin."
