I've watched enough old episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show" and lived in the South long enough to know that to give someone "a little sugar" is to give them an expression of love, usually a kiss. One definition from the Urban Dictionary states that sugar is "a Southern term for kiss. Often pronounced as 'suga' or some variation thereof." So a Southern senior has most likely given and been given a lot of sugar over the years. And most seniors are plenty sweet!
1 1/2 Cups finely ground oatmeal
1/2 Cup light oil like sweet almond, olive, or sunflower (I used the calendula infused light olive oil mentioned in the video.)
a little bit of fragrance or essential oil, maybe 1/2 ounce
Basic Sugar Scrub
1 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup Coconut oil, melted (or whatever oil/s you'd like)
1 Tablespoon dry milk powder, optional
body safe fragrance or essential oil - lavender, tea tree, peppermint, whatever you like
Additives can include ground lavender buds, jojoba beads, coffee, loose leaf tea, spices, pureed strawberries or blueberries, honey, salt. Try different sugars - brown, rapadura, raw cane.
*For personal use only. Avoid getting water in the scrub. The scrub should be used within a couple of months, otherwise, please use a preservative.
