Zesty Grapefruit Sugar Scrub


Sugar Scrub

Here is a new one for ya’.  A recipe using honey that is a hand and body scrub.  With summer upon us we need to be sure and wear plenty of sunscreen but also to exfoliate.  I don’t know about you, but honestly I love for my body to feel soft and smooth as a baby’s butt. 

Recently I attended a food bloggers conference and I found the recipe, as well as all the ingredients for this delightful scrub in one of my goody bags.  When I first opened the orange, (my favorite color) Sunkist bag and found grape seed oil, a couple of packets of honey, a box of sugar and some grapefruit I wasn’t sure why I was given those particular items.  I’m so smart, I ate the grapefruit, pink and sweet and delicious, not to mention a healthy source of vitamin C.  Upon further inspection I discovered the recipe card for Zesty Grapefruit Sugar Scrub.  I laughed!  Luckily I can buy grapefruit at the grocery…

I mixed up a batch this week and tried it on my hands.  It is wonderful and if you blot your hands dry as opposed to rubbing them the softness lasts a long time.  I’m taking it in the shower today and using it on my entire body.  My man Dan and I have a date tonight so I want to look especially soft and scrubbed.  Oh! also the grapefruit is good for whitening your nails.  It uses the juice of half a grapefruit so you can use the other half to spread the scrub on and then polish your nails with the flesh of the fruit….or eat it!

Thanks Sunkist!

Enjoy!
