Not to Eat...

In about 8 hours I'm going to be very happy: it's been like final exams all week with so much work, but it's wrapping up with a wedding tonight.  Then I'll be having a drink at one of my favorite tapas places and coming back to this Dewberry Sugar Scrub.  I just hope no one eats it before I get home!
This recipe from Martha Stewart calls for 2 cups sugar,
1 cup oil (I used grapeseed),
8 drops essential oil for scent and 1 drop of food coloring.
I used a little more sugar (around 1/3 cup more) and a lot more scent (a few times the amount called for), but it all came together.
So, I'm glad this will be waiting for me when the day is done. 
Happy Saturday!

This is one of my favorite "recipes"! I like to vary the scent each time. I also like to blend Apricot Kernel oil as well since it's light and carries scent well. Jojoba oil is very good for absorbtion and for skin, but rather pricey. The last one I made was a blend lemongrass and peppermint. Very fresh! One note that I have found, the organic sugar granules are slightly more defined, so you get a bit more scrubbing action - but they aren't bleached, so the colors don't end up as pretty...food for thought!

thanks, tris1978ton! you know i haven't gotten to use it yet, maybe tonight.

hi anjelikuh, thank you, yes, it went quite well, phew!!

wow, Gypsy, thanks for all the tips. i didn't go for the organic sugar this time, wanted to see what it was like before i sprung for the "good" stuff ;-) and i've been thinking of what oil to use next, i like the sound of the apricot!
