Custom Sugar Scrubs

You should already have all or most of these ingredients at home. I didn't want to make the scrub recipes too complicated. I also didn't want to have to go out or online and buy ingredients that I was only going to use a little bit of. I hope you like what I came up with. Enjoy!

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsps cocoa powder
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup baby oil
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
1/2 tsp almond extract

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
1/2 tsp mint extract

List of other ingredients that you could use and mix in:
Vitamin E Oil
Aloe Vera Gel
Body Spray or Perfume
Essential Oils
Lemon Zest

Here's the one I made:
Lavendar Coconut Love Sugar Scrub
1 cup organic brown sugar
1 cup organic white sugar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp coconut extract
5 drops of Lavendar Essential Oil
(I got some free samples of doTerra essential oils from a friend)

How to decorate your Sugar Scrub jar:
Use a clean empty spaghetti sauce jar, scrap paper, mod podge, acrylic paint, puff paint, a crystal sticker, and ribbon.

Measure the paper and cut it out to fit around the jar.

Paint the jar where the paper will lay with the Mod Podge.
You can do it this way or paint the actual paper to stick onto the jar.

Place the paper around the jar onto the Mod Podged area.
Press it down hard so it sticks, especially along the edges and ends of the paper.

If you have a second layer of paper, do the same as you did above.

After paper is glued to the jar, paint on top of it with the Mod Podge.
Make sure to paint a little extra on the edges of the paper onto the glass jar.

Paint the top circle of the jar lid, if desired.

Wait till the paint is dry and dot the puff paint around the edge of the lid.

Once everything is dry, then tie a bow around with the ribbon and heat seal the edges.
Then pour the ingredients for the sugar scrub into the jar.

I used the sugar scrub that I made on my hands and they felt so soft when I rinsed them off! I am so excited to create more of these sugar scrubs for friends and family! Everyone needs a little trip to the spa, even if it's in their own bathroom. hehe

I make my own scrub too....but it's just for me, so it's not at all fancy. I just mix sugar with a bit of olive oil.

Yours are prettier and would have such a lovely scent!

This is a great teacher gift idea. I'm also thinking what a great inexpensive Christmas gift idea. I'm imagining an assembly line in my kitchen of jars, sugar, oils. I will be doing this soon! Thanks for the great idea.

Such a great gift idea! and I am relatively new to "modge podge" and had not heard of "heat sealing" the edge. Thanks for a great tutorial, Joi!
