Honey and Almond Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe

Last Updated on

One of the habits I acquired during our years of poor graduate student life is always hitting the clearance shelves at the grocery store. You might wonder how this plays into my brown sugar scrub recipe but I found a deal I couldn’t pass up. Marked down to a ridiculously cheap price was a TON of organic brown sugar. Seriously. I picked up a dozen bags of organic brown sugar for about $10. Woo-hoo! Of course, now I’m looking for ways to use brown sugar so it doesn’t go bad! Sugar scrubs are always a huge hit in my house so I did a little digging and found this honey and almond brown sugar scrub recipe that came out smelling heavenly!

Honey and Almond Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe

Homemade sugar scrubs are a great way to prep your legs before shaving. Since I do a LOT of shaving in the summer, this brown sugar scrub will get a ton of use. I find that it is particularly helpful to use a sugar scrub on your bikini area if you are prone to shaving rashes like I am. I hate putting on a bathing suit only to show off razor burn! I incorporated actual almonds into the brown sugar scrub recipe rather than just using almond oil alone. The ground nuts make it more exfoliating and that really helps when prepping legs for shaving.

  1. Sounds interesting. I've never used a scrub before. Do you just rinse it down the drain while you're in the shower?
