Making Sugar Scrubs

This was a first for us.  We made several different kinds of sugar scrubs yesterday for Teacher's Appreciation Day and Mother's Day gifts.  Simon wanted to help.  Here we all with all our ingredients and containers.
 Mixing it up and being silly.  I told Simon, he could make this up for his girlfriend one day!! :)  He looked at me as if I was a crazy woman! lol
 A few short minutes later, we had our first batch completed!! 
 The dark scrub is Brown Sugar-n-Spice Scrub.  The white one is Peppermint Glimmer Sugar Scrub.  The light brown is Coconut Sugar Scrub.  They were fast an easy to make. 
 Here they are all packaged, labeled and ready to gift.
 For those interested in trying this at home...

~PEPPERMINT GLIMMER SUGAR SCRUB~
1 cup oil (I was out of olive oil and used canola)
several drops of peppermint oil (you can find this in the candle/soap making supplies at a craft store)
2 cups white sugar

Mix up and put into an air tight container.  To use, simply scoop a teaspoon or so in your hands, scrub in a circular motion on your skin.  Let in sit for a few minutes and rinse well.  Pat or air dry.  Makes your skin feel wonderful!!
 ~COCONUT SUGAR SCRUB~

1 cup olive oil
2-3 cups of organic cane sugar (if you want a drier sugar scrub use closer to 3 cups.  Using 2 cups will produce a more moist scrub)
several drops of coconut oil


Follow the same directions as above. :)
 ~BROWN SUGAR-n-SPICE SCRUB~

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup organic cane sugar
2 tsp. cinn.
2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. ginger
1 cup olive oil

Mix and package the same as above.
 I also made some using almond oil along with the coconut oil scents.  The variations on making these scrubs are endless!!!  It also is an easy project for kids to help with.  Just remind them NOT TO EAT the scrub!!! :)
