- contents of 3 chai tea bags
- ½ cup raw sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3-5 tablespoons almond oil or melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoons vanilla extract OR 6-8 drops vanilla essential oil
Cut open tea bags and empty into a bowl. Add sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Add vanilla, honey and mash the oil in with a fork and stir until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

How to use
Use on the entire body by rubbing the sugar scrub gently in circular motions up towards the heart. Rinse and pat skin dry with towel – best to use a dark colored towel. We don’t recommend using this scrub on your face, as it might be too rough for the delicate facial skin. Use once a week or fortnightly.
Decisions are omnipresent. Every day we have to deal with thousands of them. Wear the red shirt or the blue one? Hair up or down? We make decisions. Mostly we forget about them the moment we made them. (...)
