DIY vanilla body scrub - 450g golden granulated sugar
200ml olive oil
1tbs Nielsen-Massey vanilla bean paste*
To make your own body scrub, simply mix all the ingredients together, pour into a cute jar then decorate as you wish. I used an empty sauce bottle, but if you have a traditional jam jar then that would look so much better.
The great thing about a home made body scrub is that you can adjust the ingredients according to your own personal preference. I used a little less oil as I prefer a coarser scrub, but you could also play around with different essential oils and extracts (a coffee one might be quite stimulating in the mornings). Best of all, most of the ingredients will already be in your kitchen cupboard and it'll be so much cheaper than a shop brought body scrub!
