DIY ideas for home, health, & life

Good morning and WELCOME BACK!

In an ongoing effort to better myself, my environment, and my outlook-I am taking a stab at making everything at home. This includes beauty and body products.

I am also trying to extend this outlook to my gift giving. I recently made a body scrub for a friend’s wedding gift basket and it was so lovely that I made an extra for myself. It is super easy, works great, and smells awesome.

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup extra virgin olive oil (or your favorite carrier oil)

1 tbsp sea salt or kosher salt

1 tbsp vanilla extract


  1. mix together well with spatula or wooden spoon
  2. store in a seal-able, airtight jar

how to use:

  1. remember to stir this before each use, the contents will settle
  2. wash your body before use
  3. grab a scoop of sugar scrub and massage it into your skin, concentrate on dry patches
  4. scrub off mixture with warm water
  5. pat dry and moisturize

Your skin will feel amazing!
