A while back we brought you some Banana Nutbread recipes that were so popular we had to share another. It’s wintertime, and I love indulging in comfort food staples, and I love filling my home with the warm, cozy scents! 🙂
Bath products are no exception and making the transition from summer citrus scents to warm fragrances is as easy as pie.
Here’s a simple recipe that will polish your dry skin to a soft sheen while making you hungry for delicious banana bread.
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup White Sugar
1 cup Sweet Almond Oil
1 TBS Vitamin E
Start by combining the sugars. Make sure you take the time to really break up the brown sugar and incorporate it with the white. Brown sugar is sticky compared to the white so it has a tendency to clump of you don’t mix it well.
Add the sweet almond oil and stir it all up! You’ll need to take the spoon and fold the sugar around the edges into the wet sugar in the middle periodically as you stir to be sure that all the sugar is mixed in.
Mix in a few drops of fragrance oil and continue to stir. You can add as little or as much as you’d like when it comes to scenting your sugar scrubs, but always start with a small amount and add more as you go. With this particular fragrance oil, I found it to be pretty potent so I didn’t use very much.
Scoop your finished mixture into a lidded container and use as needed to exfoliate your skin. Gently massage a small amount of the scrub over damp skin and rinse with warm water. Apply a light moisturizer when finished for ultra-soft, smooth skin!
