Being Selfish: Homemade Sugar Scrub

Being Selfish: Homemade Sugar Scrub 0

This year I’m making an effort to address my addiction: sugar. Kicking addictive habits is never easy but I’m up for the challenge. First order of business, what do I do with all the extra sugar? I decided to look for a sugar scrub recipe instead of throwing away the bag. With this New York cold attacking my skin, a weekly sugar scrub will do the body good. Thanks to The idea room I found a simple recipe that combines two of my favorite scents, Cinnamon & Vanilla. That combination definitely reminds me of the Caribbean. Don’t forget to check your cupboard before you go shopping, you may already have all of the ingredients.
