This was so softening. A great recipe. I made just a little bit and used on my face, hands and feet. They feel so good. So much cheaper than what you can buy and I had to use some self control. I used orange extract instead of essential oil. I kept wanting to lick my lips.

This is a great recipe! I used light olive oil so it wouldn't have the smell of EVOO. I also added a few drops of lavender oil. It smells great and makes my skin so soft!

Wow I love this stuff...I haven't had any essential oils laying around so haven't made it using those..but I love it just fine just the same...the only problem it's a tough choice whether or not to use it as a face scrub or eat it as a dessert LOL

Even better is to use coconut oil instead of olive. OMG it's wonderful. My skin is so soft right now.

This was fabulous! I can't wait to use it in the shower each day! I also subbed the extracts for scents instead of the oils. My mom, who's very picky, made this and loved it!

Awesome! I have used this for myself and given it as a gift many times over in the past couple of months. I am regularly asked for the recipe...or simply to make more! Per the Angry Chicken blog (Amy Karol) suggestion, I make this with coconut and vanilla extracts. It smells great! The scrub leaves your skin so soft and moist. The texture is not irritating to my sensitive skin like some other scrubs I have used in the past. This is also easy enough for my elementary-age step-children to make as a gift. Thanks so much for a super new addition to my beauty routine and a perfect quick, inexpensive and unique gift idea!

i love this scrub! i can't stop using it. i added some jasmine oil and my boyfriend loves the smell and how soft my skin is now. i was using something similar from country bunny (i think it was $30 a jar) and this is just as good for waaaay less. thank you so much!

This is defiantly my favorite sugar scrub! I add 1/4 extra sugar, the juice of a whole lemon and 1 tbs of pure lemon extract.

Just a comment - when making your own products with essential oils in them, you should put them into glass containers. You can use plastic, but when you use plastic, some of the essential oils gets absorbed into the plastic and the smell will not last as long as it would in a glass container. Glass containers do not absorb the oils, and you can wash it out easily. So, if you are using a plastic container make sure that you don't intend to use it for any other purpose (like food storage) because the oils get absorbed, and I dont think anyone would like lavender mixed with your leftovers! Thanks!
