I love the sweet smell of almonds, especially, Almond Soap. So this week I decided to make an Almond Sugar Body Scrub. I was sitting on a plane thinking about how dry my skin gets in the winter, and that a new scrub sounded good, and decided that I would try making a scrub with almonds, almond oil, honey, and brown sugar.
I love using brown sugar in scrubs, because it melts into my skin. It is not quite as rough on my skin as white sugar or moscabado sugar. Since I love the smell of almonds I thought that I would roughly chop them in the food processor. Almonds will also make a great exfolliant. Next, I decided to use a little honey in this scrub because it is a natural humectant. This means it will help add moisture into my skin. I need all the help that I can get in the moisture department. I also decided that I would use almond oil in this recipe rather then coconut oil. I just love the lingering scent of almonds, and these ingredients meet all of the criteria for a great scrub. Not only will it exfoliate, but it will moisturize, which is what I need in the cold, dry Colorado winters.
So here is a recipe for a great and delicious smelling Almond and Brown Sugar Body Scrub.
Almond Brown Sugar Body Scrub
1/4 cup almonds (ground in a food processor or blender, be careful not to grind to much or you will end up with almond butter)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup raw unfiltered honey
1/4 cup almond oil
Mix all together in a bowl and store in a sterilized jar. I use wide mouth mason jars for my scrubs. It is easy to get them out of the jar that way.
I hope that you like this Almond Brown Sugar Body Scrub. Let me know what you think. I always love hearing from you.
