If you are like me and you constantly worry about the harmful chemicals/toxin in most of the products today, you will love this do it yourself Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub. The ingredients are so simple, the recipe just as simple and the amount you can make will save you money vs buying it at the store. Most of the ingredients for this recipe can be found around your home. You will need Organic Raw Shea Butter (I used THIS kind and was very pleased). The size of this one is more than you will need for this recipe which means you can make more than one batch or you can use it to make various other products.
