Why Sugar Scrubs

Body scrub products available for purchase are often expensive and contain chemical stabilizers and artificial fragrances. With ingredients often already in the cupboard you can make a variety of scrubs that are not only inexpensive but all natural.
Ingredients include sugar (white, brown, or Cain), oil (almond, coconut, and olive are most common), natural fragrances (extracts or essential oils), honey, caffeine (coffee or tea), oats, and other things can be added as well.
