Maple brown sugar scrub is my fourth recipe for spa week and it smells like a sweet treat. For this scrub, instead of using sugar and soap, I used sugar and oil. It can be used as a body scrub but I’ve heard that it can make the shower slippery so be careful! I put it into little containers for the guests at my spa party but it could be given as a Christmas gift as well.
I started out following Martha Stewart’s Body Scrub recipe that calls for 2 parts sugar to 1 part oil but it didn’t feel like the right consistency so I added more sugar. I used 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon maple extract. The amounts don’t really matter so start out with less and add more of whichever ingredient you want. The small containers are from the dollar store. I spray painted the lids silver to match the party.
Put the sugar, oil and extract into a bowl.
Combine all of the ingredients and add more if desired.
About 2 tablespoons fit into each of these containers. The entire mixture could be put into one large container but I’m not sure what the shelf life is. To help it last longer, store the scrub in the refrigerator.
I printed out labels and glued them to the containers. You can download the free printable maple brown sugar scrub labels HERE.
This little scrub smells amazing! The sugar exfoliates and the oil moisturizes so you end up with soft smooth skin!
Although I was not compensated for this post, I purchased the supplies for a sponsored post that I am doing with Collective Bias™ and the recipe will be part of my sponsored Pampering Spa Party.
