Brown Sugar Hula Scrub - DIY

Super simple DIY foot and body scrub using ingredients from your kitchen cupboard. Total time: 3-5 minutes. Just mix the following ingredients and seal in a jar with the lid. Tie a cute ribbon for a gift. (The portion shown in the photo is 1/3 of the recipe):

400 g brown sugar
50 ml coconut oil
1 tsp almond extract

I used a cooking scale to measure the grams. 
100ml = 0.423 cups. 

The key here is proportions so the sugar is moist but not over saturated. Coconut oil is rich and buttery (and smells aloha) but can be substituted with 100ml olive oil. Almond extract offers a fresh nutty aroma but can be replaced by the same measure of vanilla extract.
