Suga' Scrubdiddlydub

So, after searching and searching for a good sugar scrub recipe that didn't require me to have an entire pharmacy/craft store in my house, my mom and I decided to more or less wing it, and this is what we came up with:

- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar (we only had golden, so that's what we used)
- 1 cup epson salt
- 1/2 cup ground oatmeal (done in the coffee grinder)
- 1/2 - 1 tsp glycerin (instead of using ess. oil, we bought glycerin scented w/ rosewater)
- drop or two of oil (olive, sunflower, whatever) DO NOT ADD TOO MUCH

Mix dry ingredients, then add oil and small amount of glycerin. Mix, add more glycerin until mixture packs nicely but still crumbles. If more moisture is needed, use a little more brown sugar.

Wet skin, scrub w/ mixture, then rinse thoroughly.
(If anyone cares, a small bottle of glycerine is $1.50ish at Wal-Mart (Canada)).

I think it should last well. Oil takes ages to go rancid, and there's only a touch of that. The oatmeal would be the only thing that might get yucky, but when it's not water that's used to dampen it...? Glycerin's used to preserve flowers, so maybe it'll preserve oats too; we can only hope.
(I'm the other half of the "we" that concocted this scrub)
