I only mixed the base of oil and sugar together then divided it into the jars. Then I "flavored" each jar differently. This is a great way to get a lot of gifts done at one time. So when you need to make things for a lot of people, this is the way to go! I used vanilla and chocolate extract as well as peppermint, orange and lemon essential oils to make all of my different types of scrubs. You are only limited by your imagination.
Time for another gift in a jar, just in time for those holiday parties! This homemade sugar hand scrub is super easy to make and affordable! You can do a big batch of one fragrance or you can do individual scents. This can be scaled up or down to suit your needs and I know you are going to love it! Perfect for book club, mommy group, bible study group or any time you need a bunch of the same thing to give as a gift.
These are super easy to put together with only a few ingredients. Regular, granulated sugar, coconut or olive oil and essential oils and/or extracts. The rule is for every cup of sugar you will need 1/2 cup of oil. I used 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of oil. I ended up with five 1/2 cup jars worth of this scrub.
You can also combine scents. Such as chocolate/peppermint, eucalyptus/mint, lemon/lavender and full on citrus with orange/lemon. You can make what you like! These are great gifts for both women and men. Rick even suggested I use some of the specialty bacon extract and make some with that scent. Leave it to him to ask for bacon flavored sugar scrub! LOL!
I have designed a sheet of cute labels that you can print out and use for your sugar scrubs and more this holiday season. You can get them on my website at the link below!
I hope you give this sugar scrub a try and I hope you and the ones you make it for love it!
