Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub

For Christmas I gave a few people a wonderful smelling and tasting brown sugar and vanilla body scrub.  I have to warn you that this was my first time to make any homemade beauty product.  However, it was super easy, super cheap and super fun.  My husband was intrigued by the whole thing.

Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub

Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub

Ingredients:
2 Cups brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 Cup Coconut oil
1 Tbsp. Pure Vanilla Extract

Directions:
1.  Mix brown sugar and granulated sugar until there are no lumps.
2.  Add coconut oil and vanilla extract and mix.  Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so you may need to warm it a bit until it is soft.  (25 seconds in a microwave or set the jar in  bowl of hot water.)
3.  Put the mixture into a sealable glass jar.  I was able to fill two pint size jars with this mixture.

Easy Peasy!  I will be making more homemade beauty products in the future.
