Hey everyone! I am excited to share a fun gift (for others or yourself) that can be made from ingredients on your grocery list. This sugar scrub is fabulous, I use it after kitchen clean-up and I feel like a queen 🙂
You will need:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons dish-washing liquid
3 tablespoons oats (instant or otherwise)
Flavor (I have essential oil at my grocery, but plain old vanilla or almond extract will work)
Jars-available in the canning section
Butcher twine-if your store doesn’t sell rolls, you can snag a bit from the butcher
*Try to pick scents that will complement each other, my soap is lime and my oil is eucalyptus. It smells so fresh and clean! Vanilla extract would be a complement to almost any dish soap scent.
Mix all ingredients well to form a wet sugar. You will initially think you need to add more soap, but continue to mix, the sugar and oats will absorb more than you think. You want people to scoop a little onto their hand, so it needs to be a solid and not runny.
If you are gift-giving, this butcher twine and label will launch you into sugar scrub professional! When you wrap the twine around and back to the top, make sure to secure it all together in a knot, this will prevent it slipping off the jar. Now tie on this handy label that I made (Printable Sugar Scrub Label)… and you’re done!
