Sugar Scrub

- 3 cups white sugar
- 1 cup 2 Tbsp. good quality oil(Jojoba is great for acne prone skin and Almond for aging)
- 10 drops of scented essential oil per jar

I found a wonderful recipe for homemade foam soap. You can purchase all the ingredients at Vitacost. No more expensive Bath n Body works when you can mix your own for less. It's Vegan too!

1 cup warm water
2-4 tablespoons liquid castile soap (Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild)
1 teaspoon pure vegetable glycerine
1 teaspoon almond oil
16 drops grapefruit essential oil
20 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Put all ingredients in a large jar with a lid. Shake to mix. Pour into a soap foamer.

Skin Care

Almond oil is beneficial for treating various ailments of face, skin and hair, such as acne, eczema, dry skin, itchy scalp, and dry hair. Almond oil is a pale, clear and yellow colored liquid. Almond oil is excellent for moisturizing as it contains olein glyceride linoleic acid. It also contains vitamin E and vitamin D. It can be easily absorbed into the skin and hair.
Almond oil prevents and treats acne and blackheads, and makes it less prone to acne. It smoothes the skin and lessens any irritation and inflammation. Almond oil helps to moisturize dry skin. It is good for dry and itching skin. It helps to prevent and smooth wrinkles, soften the skin and make it more supple.

You can also use the water and carrier oil for diffusers. Water and vodka do NOT give the same results. Drink the them instead. lol
