Make Your Own Spatacular Sugar Scrub!

At one of our recent Girl Scout badge workshops in Northern Virginia, the girls had a fun day of all things spa!

The SPAtacular Me try-it workshop was a fun filled class where the girls learned about relaxation with deep breathing and music, made homemade spa products, and decorated sleepy eye masks!

One of the spa products the girls learned how to make was sugar scrub.  Sugar scrub is super easy to make, smells great and is a great skin moisturizer!  Follow the recipe below to make some of your own.
