Helpful for easing the effects of rheumatism and arthritis. Also great for removing dead skin cells and easing insect bites. Regular use of this mask can clear tanned skin and dark spots.

Sugar Scrub Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ t vitamin E oil
  • 15-20 drops of lemon or orange essential oil
  • 1 airtight jar

What to do...

  • Mix ingredients together
  • Spoon into airtight jar
  • Use a spoon, popstick, or tiny spatula to spoon out mixture
  • Do not get water into the jar, because it could introduce bacteria
  • Use the sugar scrub about twice per week

When choosing a sugar to use in your scrub, consider the following:

  • Brown sugar is softer than granulated sugar, better for sensitive skin
  • Raw sugar is coarse, so usually for body use
  • Do a small patch test if you aren't sure how your skin will react
  • If your skin requires something a little gentler, grind the sugar finer (in a pessle or with a rolling pin)
