Homemade Holiday Gift Idea #3

Simple Sugar ScrubWe got this recipe from Recipe Zaar. It's a simple inexpensive gift that you can tailor to your own liking. Use your favorite scent of essential oil. We used coconut and lime for a tropical "take me away" sensation.
This scrub is good for exfoliating any part of your body and works well with sensitive skin. Use it twice a week to keep your skin super smooth.
  • 1 glass jar.
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of light olive oil.
  • drops of your choice of essential oil

  1. mix the olive oil and sugar in the jar
  2. add any optional scents you like
  3. to use: place some on a wash cloth and rub in circles anywhere you need exfoliation
  4. after sitting for awhile the sugar may settle to the bottom, so it may be necessary to shake this up a little before using.
