I love making and giving homemade gifts for Christmas.

Last year, I gave an assortment of lip balms, sugar scrubs, and soaps, and they were a hit, especially the sugar scrub. The best part? I made it in under 5 minutes. Easy, inexpensive, and quick? Yes, please!

Tie a ribbon around the rim, and cover the lid with burlap or a pretty material, for a sweet and fun gift. Sugar scrub is a fantastic gift idea for moms, sisters, friends, teachers, or yourself! The half-pint jars are a great size for a stocking stuffer. The ideas are endless!


Citrus oils can be photosensitive, so keep that in mind while using them in your scrubs. I have used this and not had any problems, but those with sensitive skin might use this in the evenings, rather than in the mornings.

    i made this from your recipe last night and had a question… you use the sugar scrub all over the body or just feet and rough spots?
