Sugar Scrubs

When I started seeing sugar scrub recipes on Pinterest, I knew I had
to do
some for Christmas. After looking at how different people approached
them I ended up coming up with my own variations {& from what I hear
they turned out pretty good!} We kept a little of
the leftovers for ourselves and I love how they leave your skin feeling super

For the labels, I customized the Blank Pantry Lables {here} from the pretty blog. The labels I made can be found & printed {here}.
I printed the labels on cardstock & used Tacky glue to attach them
to the metal lids. I used the same glue to secure the lid to the metal
ring & let them dry over night.

The next day I made my scrubs!

Ingredients: white & brown sugars, EVOO, liquid lanolin, vanilla
extract, peppermint essential oil, nutmeg,  & fresh lemon juice

The Recipes…

Brown Sugar Vanilla: 12oz (3, 4oz jars)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup EVOO {extra virgin olive oil}
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp liquid lanolin

Peppermint: 8oz (2, 4oz jars)
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup EVOO
1/2 tsp lanolin
10 drops peppermint
1 tsp nutmeg

Lemon: 20 oz (5, 4 oz jars)
2 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup EVOO
1 tsp lanolin
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

These don’t have to be mixed in any special
order, but I added my sugar first, then the olive oil, then any other
ingredients listed & mixed thoroughly.

To present them we used little gift baskets
& lotion we found at Target in the “seasonal” section at the front.
I also printed {these} gorgeous tags from Art by Julie H.

favor bags & Merry Christmas ribbon; gift tags
we used the “favor” bags to cover the sets of 3 small scrub
We covered the smaller baskets with clear “bread bags” and added a tag to each one
For the large baskets we put each jar in a favor bag and left it “open”
All 7 baskets done!
