Simple Scrub


  • 1 cup of brown or regular refined sugar (finely ground).
    If it is not finely ground you can stick it in a blender or food processor for a second or two (be careful, if you grind it too much it turns into powder!)
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite oil (olive, sweet almond or jojoba work best)
  • A few drops of vitamin E if you would like added moisture


  • Mix ingredients together until it forms a paste.
  • Now you have an exfoliating and moisturizing facial scrub or body scrub that makes use of the natural crystals. This is great for any skin type.
  • Then apply on the face or body and rub in circular motions for 30-60 seconds then rinse. This is great for people who have sensitive skin, as it is not a harsh scrub like others can be. The crystals are finely ground so as to be gentle, and they also dissolve as you go. This mixture is best used in the shower where it is easily rinsed off.

  • For Added Benefits to the Scrub

    For added benefits you can add 1-2 drops of essential oils to the mixture.
