Make Your Own Brown Sugar Scrub! {recipe how to}


Here is a fun recipe how-to on how to make your own brown sugar scrub.  I love how this exfoliates my legs, especially during the winter. Bye, bye dry skin.  You might also like to have a few back up gifts on hand just in case.

The Sugar Scrub is a great idea for a cheap, yet cute gift.  Most of the materials you will probably already have on hand for this project which is a huge bonus!  I adjusted this recipe a little in order to make it a bit more cost effective. Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of ground oatmeal (use a blender)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil (calls for 1/4 cup of almond oil, but olive oil is more readily available and cheaper.  It is also great for your skin)
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla extract
  • Small containers with lids and ribbons for decoration

Recipe How To:

Combine all ingredients using a spatula in a large bowl until well blended. Mix should have a paste like texture. If it is too dry add more oil a few drops at a time. Conversely, if it is too oily add more dry ingredients until you reach the desired consistency. Keep stored in tightly sealed jars. May need to mix before use if ingredients settle.

  1. Just a friendly careful with the olive oil, according to much online research it can go rancid after about 60 days in a sugar scrub. The almond oil is good for about 6 months after opened and jojoba oil is good for up to 12 months after opening

  2. I love these kind of homemade ideas and gifts cuz I’m trying to reduce spending on gifts so this will make it easier! Thank you!!!
