Natural Red Sugar Scrub

Don't you love the feeling when your dry, cracked hands, feet and elbows are freshly exfoliated and silky smooth? Karen Guilmette, owner of Natural Red, a local company that makes natural personal and family care products, LOVED that feeling. Before she developed her popular sugar scrub recipe, she tried several online recipes only to be left with an oily, sloppy mess that smelled terrible and looked nothing like the pictures. Sign up for this class and you will learn the basics of making a sugar scrub, experience making it yourself and customize the scent with a variety of essential oils. Take home the recipe so you can recreate is again and again. It's a perfect gift your Mother's Day.
