Here is a super easy Sugar Scrub you can make on the cheap. Unlike most of the other scrubs I have made this scrub does not use a carrier oil. (I used soap for this one!)
This is a 3 ingredient scrub!
This makes a great homemade holiday gift!
What You Need:
White Sugar (Granulated Cane Sugar)
I found a small 2 ounce bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Soap in the travel section at Target. If I remember correctly it was around $2.
You can also order online at Amazon.
Mix 1 1/2 cups of sugar with 1 oz of the Peppermint Soap.
I was able to make 2 jars with one 2 oz bottle of soap.
Depending on the texture you prefer you may want to add more or less sugar. I started with one cup of sugar. I decided I wanted the scrub to be a little more firm, so I added the additional 1/2 cup of sugar.
I crushed one soft peppermint candy and placed it on the top for pizazz!
If you do not want to use the peppermint soap, you could use grapeseed, coconut or olive oil and peppermint essential oil.
If you are planning to gift your scrub, you can use fabric or craft paper to dress up your jar.
I decided to go with the craft paper, just trace the inner lid of the mason jar and cut!
