Sugar Scrub

I am a big fan of making your own gifts for people during the holidays. Not only does it really show that you are thinking about them and investing time into their gift, but it also gives you total control over the ingredients.

This year I decided to go for a do it yourself Sugar Scrub. People pay out the nose for these things at Bath and Body and even more for the Christmas addition.

What you need:
1 cup of organic sugar
1 cup of veggie oil
One drop of vitamin E
1-2 drops of essential oil (i picked Cinnamon and Orange because they remind me of Christmas time!)
Glass jars
Ribbon for decoration

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and blend well. Using a spatula divide it into the jars.

I also made Labels for each of the jars with some cute clip art to explain how to
use it. Tie these on with some of the ribbon.
