Spring is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than a floral inspired body scrub! This sugar scrub gently exfoliates as it cleanses and leaves your skin feeling clean, soft and glowing! Use 1-2 times per week or 3-4 times in dryer climates to keep skin soft and moisturized. Sugar removes and fights toxins, is anti-aging and makes your skin glow. 

How to use… In the shower or bath, scoop 1-2 teaspoons of scrub and rub into your skin in a circular motion. The sugar will exfoliate and then melt away in the warm water. Rinse off completely. 

This recipe is a larger batch that can be used as is or split up into four parts to make four different kinds of scrubs. Below are four different combinations! Essential oils can also be used instead of fragrance oils along with different clay and herb combinations.
