Home-made sugar scrub

The original recipe comes from the italian blog 'fotoefornelli' (http://fotoefornelli.com/2011/05/non-si-mangia-scrub-naturale-al-limone-e-lavanda/), but I've actually modified it and used the ingredients I had "chez moi"!


15 tbs of brown cane sugar

4 tbs of calendula infused sweet almond oil (previously obtained by following the suggestion of Anne-Marie from Bramble Berry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q22G3CzwT3E)

10 drops of tangerine essential oil (cosmetic grade, skin safe) that I bought from The Soap Kitchen

It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
