Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! It was such a sweet time with my family! Lots of precious memories to hold onto.
The kids and I actually completed this on Friday before Christmas just to add a little something extra under the tree for the ladies in our lives. Sam and Mags really got a kick out of making gifts. I surfed blogland a bit to get some ideas of the basic ingredients and came up with these recipes. These mixes are so super easy and you may already have all that you need to whip up a batch in your kitchen. The scrub softens up dry skin so nicely!
Here are our recipes…
*Both recipes yielded about 2 1/2 cups of sugar scrub
There are so many possibilities to play around with these sugar scrub mixes. You could use coconut oil or baby oil, different extracts or essential oils to change the scent. Lots of fun to play around with! The shelf life of these babies isn’t going to be as long as something you would buy in the store because it is preservative free sooo I am estimating a month or two for freshness.
Thankfully my awesome Mom cannot part with glass jars easily so I raided her stash to fill with scrub. I used Mod Podge and craft paper to decorate the lid and twine to tie my tag on.
Side note….my hubby totally knocked it out of the park this year for Christmas! Seriously that man has been listening! Anyway…I scored the latest Cricut…eeek! Ohhhh the possibilities! These tags would have been sooo much cuter with my fancy dancy new machine but alas my scribbly handwriting will do for now.
Wishing you all a great week as we wrap up 2011!
