3 All Natural DIY Sugar Scrubs


This year for the holiday gift giving season I am  am making some DIY gifts from the kitchen and one of my favorite things to make are DIY Sugar Scrubs!  I like to have these on hand during the holidays for host / hostess gifts, a last minute gift for an unexpected visitor, your neighbors, friends, and just a little something for someone special.

I know, when I receive something handmade, I am truly grateful that person was thinking of me when they made the gift and took the time to personalize it just for me. It is so much more thoughtful than just buying a gift at the store or online. These sugar scrubs not only smell amazing but are super exfoliating, super moisturizing and are made with all natural ingredients found in your kitchen. When you step out of that tub or shower, your skin is soft, smooth and smells amazing!

I found a couple of super easy online printable websites for labels…one of the them is Avery Design and Print Online Labels and the other was World Label’s Pre-designed Label Templates which opens to a new tab and you can edit the TO: and FROM: information.  Both are super easy to use and have thousands of labels to pick from.

I used cellophane and burlap cut into circles for the tops of the mason jars.

To my family and friends, act surprised when you open your amazing handmade gift! 🙂

**Each batch makes 3-250 ml mason jars or 6-125ml mason jars
