Next, gradually start introducing the oil in to the sugar, stirring it in slowly. The consistency should be akin to a slushy, but you can add more or less liquid, as per your preferences. Use the spoon to combine the sugar and oil, and make sure you go easy with the oil at first – you can always add more if you feel it is too dry.

Once the sugar and oil have been incorporated into a loose, sloppy paste, add in your preferred fragrance. You can go for flowery scents like lavender or jasmine, fruity ones like apple or melon, or warm spices like cinnamon – basically, anything you like. Mix it in well.

Pour this mixture into your sterile container, and screw on the lid. Do not make too much, as the mixture contains no preservatives, and is thus prone to bacteria, and make sure you keep the lid screwed on tight when it is not in use.

The scrub is now ready, and can be used in the shower for your legs and arms, or on the hands and feet prior to a manicure and pedicure. However, do not apply it more than once or twice a week (as this can lead to skin irritation), and if you happen to use it in the shower, clean the area after usage as the oils from the scrub can make the floor dangerously slippery.
