Honey Brown Sugar Scrub (An Easy Gift)

Mother’s Day is coming up! I feel so grateful to have so many amazing women a part of my life!  I honestly don’t know what I would do without them.

My mom is the best listener. I frequently call her and blab forever while she patiently listens. She is such a support and has always made me feel capable. Everyone needs a cheerleader in their life.

My mother-in-law is one of the most Christ-like persons I have ever met. She is so kind and willing to give. She loves everyone. I tell her all the time that when I grow up I want to be just like her. She was the one that cleaned my house, took me to the doctor, and took care of me when I had a horrible bout of mastitis coming home from the hospital with my first. I seriously owe her the world.

I could go on about all the women in my life that have taught me so many lessons that I hope to make part of my me so I can be a better mother and a friend.

My grandmothers are also so dear to me. Growing up I had both of my great grandmothers and both my grandmothers. I told you I have been surrounded by some pretty amazing women. My grandma never forgets a birthday. She is soft spoken and so thoughtful. I remember having sleepovers at her house and going to the library. I remember my other grandma making homemade cinnamon rolls. She never used the mixer the family bought her — she preferred to make all her dough with her hands. Nothing ever tasted so good.

This honey sugar scrub is such an easy gift to put together, and a lot less expensive than buying one.  I am sure you have some amazing woman in your life like me, give them this mini spa at home.

This scrub is seriously awesome for soft skin. You might as well make one for you and one for an awesome mom in your life. This recipe comes from Pumpkin and Princess.  I only changed it slightly.  I like to use half brown sugar half raw can sugar.  The raw cane sugar has bigger granules and I think it does a better job of sloughing off old skin.

Honey Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 C brown sugar (I used half brown sugar half raw cane sugar)
  • 1/2 C olive oil or sunflower oil (it is more neutral smelling)
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional, but smells good)

Directions

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl until mixed completely together. Store in an air tight container. I got mine at Hobby Lobby.
  2. Keep the scrub in the shower or bath and use it until it is gone.

(If you want to add a preservative to make it last longer, add 1 tsp vitamin E oil)
