So I decided to make some sugar scrubs for Christmas presents! It was my first time making anything bath and body related, so I decided to go with something super easy.
I followed a recipe I found somewhere online, it called for:
4 cups of sugar
1 cup of vegetable oil.
I thought it might even be a little too oily, but that's helped to make my hands feel softer after washing with it.
I also added soap coloring and some scents.
ALSO, I really, really hate when people post blurry photos, but I've been having a lot of camera trouble lately. So I would like to apologize, this is the best I could do. D:
All of the containers together. They're all either mint, mango or... mystery juicy couture scent. They all have a little handwritten tag with simple directions on it, attached with embroidery floss.
(I don't like how the bigger containers are only half filled. D: I wish I would have bought more supplies! I only used one small bag of sugar).
These are the tops of the smaller canning jars. I found them in Target, but there was only one set of four.
Here's the tops of the other containers. They were just Target brand tupperware, with screw on lids.
I would have rather used more jars, but the only other kind they had were huuuge.
This one is for my best friend, it's my favorite!
Here's the inside of a mint!
And the inside of a mango!
And the mystery scent!
This is what I used for the scent.
The Juicy smelling one is a sample that my friend got, and passed on to me.
The mango one is a small body spray that I got in the travel-sized stuff at Target, it was only a dollar.
The mint is Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap. I think I'm going to have a problem with that, it looks like it may make the sugar kinda weird, but I'm not sure yet.
I just poured tiny bits in until it smelled "right".
Online it said they would last up to three months, and I'm hoping this is true! I hope the oil doesn't all sink to the bottom either.
Well, I'm proud of it as a first try!
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy it!!!
