Homemade Hand and Body Scrubs

Hi everyone! Here are some great, easy body scrubs that will make your skin feel ah-mazing!  We love making scrubs and here are a few of our favorites! Hope you enjoy!
Mixing the Citrus Hand Scrub

Citrus Hand Scrub

2 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup oil (we used olive)
4 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs. lime juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Just mix them all together and store in an air-tight container.  Use as a cleaning, softening, de-grubbing hand scrub!
Ingredients for a yummy scrub

Cocoa-Coffee Body Scrub

Chocolate for the scrub!

1 cup sugar
1 cup coffee grounds
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup coconut oil
Pouring the Chocolate-y goodness!

Mix and pour all ingredients into an air-tight container and use in the shower or bath to fight aging, red bumps on the backs of arms, dry skin, and other impurities.  And it will smell oh-so-good!
Pouring for the Brown Sugar Scrub

Brown Sugar Scrub

2 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 Tbs. vanilla extract
1/4 cup olive oil

This can be stored in an air-tight container after mixing and used anytime you'd like to soften your skin and smell like a delicious, freshly-baked cookie.

The extracts
First the sugar

Lots of Sugar
