Homemade Sugar Scrub

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It was mild weather but at least the sun was shining. We went out to the outlet mall for the Nike store.  Hubby bought me running shoes along with other running gear for my upcoming birthday.  Is it just me but is there anything more fun than shoe shopping?  No matter how much your clothing size fluctuates, your shoe size stays the same. 🙂

This was another simple pin but very successful!  It makes sense that I tried a body sugar scrub since I use the Gardener’s Hand soap and the  Super Silky Legs shaving scrub.  They both have a sugar base and do an excellent job of exfoliating.  So no surprise then that I love the homemade body sugar scrub!  The smell is amazing!

I made the recipe in a 6 oz. mason jar.  I then put it in a Lush plastic container for the shower.  I am way to clumsy to have glass in my shower.

This would be a great gift to make with your kids for grandma’s Mother’s Day gift at a cheap price.   Tie a ribbon around the jar and add a bow to the top.  Put in a cute gift bag.  The kids could each make her a card.  The kids would love they made it themselves too for her.

Homemade Sugar Scrub

For a 6 oz. jar

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
Fill top with olive oil (covering sugars and an extra half inch more)
1-2 Tablespoons of vanilla to add a delicious smell (I used 2 T)


Mix all together really well.

Use a spoonful at a time to scrub body.

Enjoy a smooth body afterwards! 🙂

Thanks to the blogger for her great tip!   http://www.homemadeginger.com/2011/05/homemade-sugar-scrub.html

Have a wonderful Monday!  Be sure to purchase your Mother’s Day cards and gifts for Sunday.  If you have a loved one that  struggles with infertility or their child or mother have died this is a good week to call and check in with them.  This week can be very hard seeing all the Mother’s Day commercials.  It then helps with remembering our own blessings too.
