Here is a fun recipe how-to on how to make your own brown sugar scrub. I love how this exfoliates my legs, especially during the winter. Bye, bye dry skin. You might also like to have a few back up gifts on hand just in case.
The Sugar Scrub is a great idea for a cheap, yet cute gift. Most of the materials you will probably already have on hand for this project which is a huge bonus! I adjusted this recipe a little in order to make it a bit more cost effective. Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup of ground oatmeal (use a blender)
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar (packed)
- 1/2 cup of olive oil (calls for 1/4 cup of almond oil, but olive oil is more readily available and cheaper. It is also great for your skin)
- 1 tsp of Vanilla extract
- Small containers with lids and ribbons for decoration
Recipe How To:
Combine all ingredients using a spatula in a large bowl until well blended. Mix should have a paste like texture. If it is too dry add more oil a few drops at a time. Conversely, if it is too oily add more dry ingredients until you reach the desired consistency. Keep stored in tightly sealed jars. May need to mix before use if ingredients settle.
