homemade sugar scrub-makes a great gift!

This is so easy that I didn't bother taking photos of the process.
And the end product is delightful...I tried some myself.
All you need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup veggie oil
a few drops of essential oil/fragrance
(found in the soap making section of the craft store)
vitamin E capsule contents (if desired)
16oz jars
Mix everything together and place in jar.
I decorated the tops with pretty papers.
You can also package it with a tiny spoon if you can find them.

Perfect gift for teachers, coworkers....anyone really. :)

I'm going to have to give this sugar scrub a try! I'm sure it's a lot less expensive than any scrub you would buy somewhere.

Christianne @ Little Page Turners said...

Great idea! I love sugar scrub, but it's so stinking expensive! Thanks for sharing!

So cutely packaged!! I make a very similar sugar scrub, except that I use aloe baby oil, vanilla extract, and lavender essential oil. My moeher in law LOVES it!!

Oh, I was so inspired by your Christmas village that I made my own. I'll post them soon.

Thanks for such a super-great idea! I was afraid I wouldn't be able to afford gifts for my work girlfriends and such, but this is just the thing! I'm so impressed...as usual! :)

This is a PRECIOUS idea! I am making them tonight with my daughter and her friends (11th birthday slumber party) and after they leave me to go watch movies in the den and all that girl stuff I am going to keep making the entire dozen jars I bought for gifts for my girlfriends! LOVE IT!
