"DIY Easy Sugar Scrub"


50 percent white cane sugar (note that organic sucanat, while the best choice for food, doesn’t work as well for this recipe)
50 percent vegetable glycerin to moisten the sugar (I used avocado oil since I was out of vegetable glycerin and it proved to be a successful substitute)
Small amounts of aloe vera gel, vitamin C crystals, or anything healing that dissolves in water
1 or 2 drops of essential oil if desired (Larry recommends combining orange and lavender)
Enough ground hibiscus powder for pink color (if desired)

Combine the ingredients in a bowl. Scoop some of the scrub onto your hand and massage gently onto your skin for a minute (the scrub will actually tighten onto your skin like a masque). Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before rinsing.

Yes, almost all fruits are packed with nutrition and are an important part of a healthy and balanced diet.

Acai Berries

These healthy fats are also known to promote the absorption of important vitamins and other carotenoids essential for a healthy heart.


This yellow super fruit is a favorite among all walks of life. Bananas are amazing for improved overall health because of their incredibly high levels of potassium and resistant starches.

These vitamins are powerful antioxidants that help protect the body against heart disease and certain types of cancer.


pomegranatePomegranates are certainly deserving of their super fruit title.
