Being raised by my grandmother, I've been accustomed to doing a lot of things the organic way. It's pretty cool, especially those things that are passed on from my grandma's past generations. Many of you know, that in my culture, sharing organic secrets and recipes is a social fad. Today I'll share a body exfoliator recipe that some of my friends use.

Every so often I exfoliate my skin with a natural scrub. I've never spent money on exfoliator products from Bath & Body Works or any of those other skincare lines. This scrub is made of yummy brown sugar and it's an effective way to give back to yourself. Make your skin sweeter, get rid of those dead scally wags and indulge in a invigorating experience.

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

1/2 cup ground almonds 1/2 cup ground oatmeal 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1/4 cup almond oil 1 tsp. vanilla extract


Combine all ingredients and blend until it's a paste like texture.  Shower in warm water. Massage in circular motions from your shoulders all the way down to your feet.
