DIY Brown Sugar Beauty Scrub

First you’re going to need to get in that pantry and scope out what you’ve got. I’m using some hard as rocks brown sugar that fell to the back of the cabinet, raw honey, imitation almond extract I bought and never use, and coconut oil. Plus some dregs of white sugar to get the texture I want.
