I make homemade beauty recipes often for several reasons- I am a busy mom on a budget and I don't have the time or the money for expensive spa treatments. Luckily, with some experimenting I have found many that I can do at home for very little cost, and they are just as good or better because you don't have to worry about the added chemicals. When you are planning out your gift list this year be sure to include some homemade beauty items like this Oatmeal Cookie Homemade Sugar Scrub- it's great for teachers, friends, neighbors, white elephant gift exchanges, stockings, and more! It smells so good and just like the real thing coming hot out of the oven, while it is safe to eat, I wouldn't recommend it.
Oatmeal Cookie Brown Homemade Sugar Scrub
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 122 tsp. butter extract
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and transfer to a jar with a tight fitting lid. If you prefer you can puls the oatmeal for a bit in blender to make the flakes smaller . I put my sugar scrub in this little container that I found at Target in the dollar spot and had enough left over for several more that I will be gifting for Christmas!
To use: Apply a generous handful of oatmeal scrub to wet elbows, feet, shoulders, or anywhere else that can use a good exfoliating treatment. Scrub vigorously, rinse well, and pat skin dry. I find I don't usually even need a moisturizer after.
