DIY Vanilla Body Scrub

I am all about saving money on things I enjoy in life.  A nice body scrub then soak in the tub is essential to relaxing and nourishing your skin at the same time. This scrub leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated with no need to slather anything else on afterwards!
I make this scrub using all organic ingredients - it's insanely easy!  I like knowing exactly what is in a product I am putting on my skin.
1/2 cup organic finely granulated sugar
1 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup organic sunflower oil (or other carrier oil-grape seed, sweet almond, olive, etc.) 
4 Tsp. organic vanilla flavoring extract
1 Tbl. organic honey (optional)
Mix everything together very well and place in any type of jar you have around.
So easy and smells wonderful.  Enjoy and thanks for visiting....

Extra:  It is easy to make your own vanilla extract and it is inexpensive; it can be used for cooking as well as body scrubs:
4 organic vanilla beans (slice and dice very small)
1 cup vodka or bourbon
Place vanilla beans and seeds in a jar, cover them with the alcohol and place cap on jar.  Shake and swish the jar every day for approximately 6 weeks.
