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.
There have been a lot of questions about the exact containers I used so I purchased another package for this photo. I should’ve taken a picture before I painted the original ones but I didn’t even think it of. I found these containers at the Family Dollar in one of the food aisles as a hanging extra. You know the little things that are hanging between the items on the shelves? Each container holds 2.4 oz and they cost $1.00 for the 8 pack.
Put the sugar, oil and extract into a bowl.
This little scrub smells amazing! The sugar exfoliates and the oil moisturizes so you end up with soft smooth skin!
