Lavender Olive Oil Body Scrub

It's green!  (It's because of the olive oil.)  This body scrub looks weird but is moisturizing and smells amazing.  It's a great one for relaxing, evening bath time.  Your skin will thank you.

Makes about 1 cup.

Lavender Olive Oil Body Scrub

1 cup granulated white sugar

1/2 cup olive oil

30 drops lavender essential oil

Mix everything together and transfer it to a lidded container.  

(I prefer plastic to glass for anything near the tub because I'm clumsy.)
