Sugar can make you pretty . . . Works For Me Wednesday

It will come as no surprise to you that I have a great love for C&H sugar and Domino sugar. What I didn't know about them, is that they have websites full of recipes and a special section on homemade gifts. (They even provide printable gift tags!)

Now, we all know that sugar can make you irresistible in the kitchen, but did you know it can make you pretty, too? Take a gander at this Brown Sugar and Spice Body Scrub!!!

I whipped this up today to give to my sister. (You may remember she just had a baby and I thought if she ever gets a chance to take a shower again, she better make it count!)

There happened to be just a little of the scrub that wouldn't quite fit into the jar, so I tried it on my hands and arms. OH MY! My skin is now so silky smooth and I smell like gingerbread! I have been caressing my own hands and arms all's a little scary.

Here's how to make it:

1 cup C&H/Domino Light Brown Sugar
1 cup C&H/Domino Pure Cane Sugar
¾ cup almond oil (I found mine in the "organic beauty" section)
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ginger
2 tsp. nutmeg
1 16 oz. glass container with lid

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk all dry ingredients until thoroughly blended. Be sure to break up any lumps from the brown sugar or from the spices.

Stir in the almond oil. Spoon into the glass container and secure with lid.

{I tied the jar with ribbon and added a spring of berries from our front yard....}

{...and, I'm including a little tag with the instructions...}

"Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub on your hands and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. The scrub will tighten on your skin."

I am definitely making a few more jars for Christmas gifts and one for myself, of course!

♥Thank you C&H and Domino Sugar who sponsored this post with a $20 gift card towards expenses! You are so sweet, literally!♥
