Thanks Judy46970 - just the recipe I was searching for to replace my beloved Soap and Glory scrub! I adjusted the recipe, using Demerara sugar, sweet almond oil and orange and lemon essential oils as well as lime juice. The scrub is very effective on my arms (esp. elbows) and anywhere with general winter scaliness x
-2 1/2 Cups of Sugar (Yes, just normal sugar)
-1 Cup of oil (I used Olive Oil ... You can also use Canola, Vegetable, Avocado, Coconut or any fragranced body oil you have).
-5 Tablespoons of a citrus juice. Preferably fresh squeezed.
I have used this scrub since last year and it works wonders! I have even used it on my face with excellent results. I add a bit more sugar for a thicker scrub and I use bottled lemon juice. Since I have very dry flaky skin, this scrub is a staple in my bathroom. It is cheap and so simpletomake and like I said, works wonders for me.
**Do not omit the citrus juice because that is what keeps the sugar from disolving in the oil!**
