Honey Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe
Happy Friday, friends! How was your Valentine’s Day? We had a great day with the kids and an evening out alone. We went to our favorite Italian restaurant then out for a little shopping. My store of choice was of course Lowe’s for a few DIY projects I’m working on. I’m a little sad that Valentine’s Day is over but I’m already looking forward to Spring and Easter. Today we’re switching gears away from holiday crafts and I’m going to share with you how you can create your own spa-like experience at home with this Honey Brown Sugar Scrub recipe.
Scrubs can be pricey but with only a few ingredients found in your pantry you’ll be hooked on this easy to make sugar scrub!
Last week I shared the “spa at home” gift I made for a friend and you may have spotted the sugar scrub in there. Since then I’ve made a few adjustments to the recipe.
I found this brown sugar scrub recipe in the recent Sandra Lee magazine. I’ve tried basic sugar scrubs before but this recipe called for honey and cinnamon, both of which I haven’t tried in a scrub before.
The original recipe was great and left my skin feeling soft, but I didn’t like how oily it was. It called for two cups of brown sugar but I increased mine by a quarter cup. Start with 2 and increase the amount of brown sugar based on your preference. :)
Honey Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe:
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
In a bowl combine all ingredients until fully mixed; store in an airtight container. In case you’re wondering I found these jars at Hobby Lobby. Tie the jar with bakers twine, add a wooden spoon, and you have the perfect sugar scrub gift!
Update: I’ve had a few people ask about adding a preservative to the scrub to make it last longer. I recommend adding 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil to your scrub then storing them in a tightly closed container. :)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great weekend!
I have been looking for a nice scrub recipe to use as small Christmas presents for my friends and this looks delicious! Thankyou :)
How long do these keep for?
I tried your honey brown sugar scrub recipe.
Very easy to make. I played with the recipe a bit and made my own adjustments. Instead of using olive oil i used coconut oil. And added some orange zest to create that christmas smell….
I just came across this scrub and I cant wait to make it! should I refrigerate or will it be ok left at room temperature withe Vitamin added? Also how much does this make?
