I am totally obsessed with anything that has an almond scent. In fact, I use almond extract in a lot of recipes because I am just so hooked on that scent and flavor.

When I use this homemade maple almond body scrub in the shower it makes my entire bathroom smell absolutely amazing.

I really love what homemade body scrubs do for my skin, and I use them three or four times a week.

The sugar is great for buffing away that top layer of dead skin cells to reveal glowing and youthful skin underneath.

When I first discovered body scrubs I was amazed by how much softer my skin felt to the touch after using the product in the shower. I was actually quite amazed, and sort of felt like I scrubbed away years worth of yucky dull skin! It’s really not a myth that body scrubs improve the texture of your skin.
