Directions from packaging:

Sugarbath Brown Sugar Body Polish should be used on a daily basis, even if only for a few minutes, to provide the maximum benefit. In addition to five rich oils, the Body Polish contains arnica and passiflora extracts, which are known to improve circulation and cool muscles. Exfoliation with Brown Sugar Body Polish will improve blood flow to the skin's surface and soften the skin, in addition to providing a totally rejuvenating and relaxing experience. For daily use, a gentle scrubbing with Brown Sugar Body Polish is advised. Occasionally, a vigorous rubdown is suggested for a more exhilarating experience. It will leave skin stimulated, not irritated, and will result in skin that is healthier, smoother and more resilient.
