I want to thank everyone who linked with my Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party 20.  All of your projects are wonderful and I would feature all of them if I could, but I think that the blog would probably be a little too long.  I hope that all of you link more posts this week.  

Let's Party!!!

The only rules are to follow me, have a link somewhere on your post to Adorned From Above, and visit some other posts - after all it is a party.
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


Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.

Enjoy!!!
Debi
