Sharing is caring!

As the hot summer days escape us and the crisp autumn air blows in, there is no denying that harvest season is full swing!

While we all jump in to our sweaters and boots to stay warm, it’s inevitable that the change in weather will leave our skin feeling dull and dry.

This DIY Brown Sugar Scrub is the perfect way to use some favorite fall ingredients to slough off the flakes and put the glow and shine back into your skin!

My Favorite Essential Oils Add-Ins:

The following essential oils and oil blends are from Rocky Mountain Oils.  Did you know that Rocky Mountain Oils‘ essential oils are the highest quality available in the industry!?

Yes and you don’t even have to have anyone into your home to get them.  It is not a home party kind of company – thank goodness!  I am home partied out.

This is a website you go to and purchase what you need.  No middle man, directly to the shop. 🙂  Anyway, I tend to get passionate about my oils. 🙂  The following contain affiliate links.

Rocky Mountain Oils are the ONLY oils I use.

With an asthmatic, child in the Autism Spectrum, several with psoriasis, our increasing ages, and allergies like you wouldn’t believe, I am very picky about what products come into our home.

I fully back RMO and guess what, so do they!  90 day money back guarantee – yes, please!

This scrub is great to use for a fun at home mother-daughter pedicure. Just apply, rinse, and love the results!

How to store your Do-It-Yourself Brown Sugar Scrub:

You should always keep your scrub sealed tightly in an airtight container like any of the following (aff links):
