Create your own body or facial scrubs with these organic sweet crystals. They are a combination of dried honey, cane juice (raw sugar), and molasses. Honey is a natural skin softener as well as a natural healer, and the sugar & molasses crystals will act as a gentle exfoliant.
Try adding these crystals into your sugar scrub recipes, or use this one:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey-sugar crystals
1/2 fine grain sea salt
1/4 cup grapeseed, or sweet almond oil
Mix all the ingredients together, and rub lightly on your body and rinse off. The sugar & salt will exfoliate and polish your skin while the oils & honey will soften and leave a healthy glow. To vary this recipe you can substitute (all or part of) the oil for glycerin. Since this is an exfoliating recipe, I recommend using this only once a week.
To use these crystals in facial masks, simply add one teaspoon full to warm water or aloe vera oil (not gel), and stir until dissolved. Then add in the clay and any other desired herbs and apply to skin. Once the mask has "set" wash with warm water and pat dry.
These crystals are also "food grade" quality and can be used for baking, or other kitchen uses.
