Tiny indulgences make me happy. I love scented lotions, scrubs, oils, shampoos etc., but my skin is so sensitive that I rarely attempt to try a new one. With my sister's upcoming baby shower, I was thinking of an indulgent, useful and home made gift I could make for her guests. After looking through some pinterest ideas and checking my cabinets, I realized I had everything on hand to make this 100% natural, (organic and vegan) sugar scrub. I just tried it in the shower and it is AMAZING!! No need for extra moisturizer.
Here's what you'll need:
Two parts sugar
One part oil (olive, almond, jojoba)
Essential oil of your liking
Directions: In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, oil and a few drops of essentail oil. You can add as much or as little essential oil as you would like. For my test batch I used lavender oil, but for the shower favors I am going to use one invigorating scent and one relaxing scent--probably tangerine and lavender. I also ordered the little wooden craft spoons to tie on to the jars, raffia, glass jars and tags. Here are links to the items I ordered:
Of course you can use any jar you have on hand that you have recycled, but in this case I want them all uniform since I am making them as thank you gifts (favors).
