These would be nice to have on hand at Christmas when you have that person you forgot to get something for, or when someone unexpectedly gets you something and you would like to reciprocate.
You could also make up a basket full of things to pamper someone and add the sugar scrub to it!
Gather your supplies:
Gift Container (we used an inexpensive jar)
Scrapbook Paper (optional)
A word about supplies:
Peppermint oil can be found at your local health food store.
We love peppermint for Christmas. Health food stores carry an endless array of essential oils. They can also tell you what scents work well together.
Sunflower oil doesn’t have a scent. I also found it at the health food store, but it should be available at grocery stores as well.
The scoop was found in a package of three at a discount store. It certainly isn’t necessary, but isn’t it cute?
3 cups sugar
1 cup + 2 T sunflower oil
About 10 drops of peppermint oil
Depending on the size of your jars, you may be able to get several gifts out of this amount.
Spoon into jars and screw on the lid.
Tie a pretty ribbon around the jar, adding a scoop if you’d like. Make a cute label or add a tag telling what is inside the jar.
