Sweetsy Sugar Scrub

Usually when giving a gift I've made, I don't blog about it 'till after I've given it away, but I'm break'n the rules today. We're probably going out of town this weekend, so I figured this time it would be fine. :)

For Mother's Day I made some Sweetsy Sugar Scrub for my Mother and Mother-in-law. Shhh, you won't tell right? We're going to see my Mother-in-law this weekend.

Here's what you'll need:

Pour sugar in mixing bowl

Pour in E.V.O.O. to a good consistency. I used around 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cup. 
I didn't measure too much, just went with it. Mix really well.

It should look kinda clumpy like this.

This little bottle of scented oil I got at the dollar store. They have several different scents. 
I poured in about 1/3 of the bottle. 
Edit to add: After I made the scrub I was reading the fine little print on the bottle, and it is acually not made for skin use. But I've noted that if I leave the little jars of scrub open they make my room smell so nice! Try using scented oils from Bath & Body that are made for the skin; or vanilla, or lemon juice instread. (I have heard that pure vanilla extract is actually good on sunburns, so that might be best.)

Then I added some drops of red and blue food coloring to make a light lavender color.
I should've used more and made it more purpley, but the stirring was making my arm SO tired!
This was as purple as it was gonna get.

Then scoop into your 2 beautiful Ball Mason Jars (16 oz.)
Maybe add a little ribbon.

Happy belated Mother's Day!


  1. These look wonderful! I love the color.

  2. I love gifts made at home! So much more personal! Lovely! :) Just stopping by to say thanks for commenting on my painted 'granite' countertop post! I appreciate it! :)

  3. The food coloring doesn't come out and stain the hands or feet or water?


Please leave a comment! I love feedback! Really, say anything :)

People come'n and goin'
