Phase 2:  Weigh the brown sugar and ground oats and combine into a mixing bowl.  Set aside.
Phase 3:  Weigh all the liquid ingredients into another bowl.  
Phase 4:  Slowly add the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients and stir until completely blended.

 "The only dislike was color - otherwise LOVED IT!"

"The appearance of the scrub did not appeal to me.  It looked "dirty."  As I placed it on my skin, a lot of it fell off.  It also was greasy to the tub and did not rinse off the tub easily.  My skin felt nice at the end but the experience wasn't "spa like" at all."

"Didn't care for this one at all. Left my skin too oily and didn't glide on well."
