This weekend, I mixed up a batch of homemade Sugar Scrub. I'll use this in the gift baskets I give to family and friends. Fill jars with the sugar scrub, print a label from the computer and tie with a pretty ribbon. My oldest two daughters and I love using the sugar scrub in the shower
1 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil (optional - used as a preservative)
1 teaspoon cocoa butter
6 drops lavendar essential oil (or any fragrance you like)
Mix all ingredients until well blended. Place into a clean glass jar with a tight lid and add a fancy label. I highly recommend the 1/2 pint wide mouth canning jars and wide mouth plastic storage lids.
