  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp high quality unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup sweet almond oil may use grapeseed oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, or coconut oil
  • NOTE: if you want to lend this a different scent you may use a few drops of essential oils. Think orange, peppermint, or vanilla absolute.


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugars, vanilla, and cocoa powder until finely mixed and no clumps remain. Gently fold in the almond oil (or another oil choice) until a thick, glossy paste forms.
  • Spoon into jars, seal tight, and gift, or use right away!
  • TO USE: Lightly wet skin. Apply a generous amount to wet skin, rubbing in circular motions to exfoliate. Let sit for a few minutes before rinsing off. Lightly towel dry so as not to remove the oils from your skin. Do not use on face. Contact your dermatologist before using any new product and test on an inconspicuous, small area before applying to your whole body. If irritation occurs, please stop using the product. SUGAR SCRUB will keep for up to 2 months sealed.
