HOMEMADE SUAGR SCRUB RECIPES AND PACKAGING IDEAS!!

November 30, 2011

As I have already told you guys, I am making some homemade gifts this year. The first of gifts, I want to share with you guys is these wonderful sugar scrubs. I have made some of these and compared them to my bath and body sugar scrubs and I promise you.. mine are just as good..

So first off the recipes and then you will see a bunch of pictures on how to package them for gifts. They are not my pictures but inspiration!
Now you can switch these up with any kind of essential oil that you want.. I think a cute is a candy cane sugar scrub and all you would do to make it is use any of the recipes below.. but I think the white sugar scrub would work best for this and add some peppermint essential oils..

Simple stuff!

Very simple first recipe..

white sugar

brown sugar

Olive Oil

Vanilla

Equal parts of sugar, mix together,

add enough olive oil to the consistency you like 


and 1 capful
of vanilla



mix well




Put in a jar with a lid and enjoy!
---------------------------------------------------------------------


1 cup pure cane sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

Oil from one vitamin E capsule

1-2 drops essential oil (e.g., lavender, orange, lemon)

1 16oz. glass container with a lid

Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Using a spatula, transfer the mix into the container and secure the lid. Contents will settle, mix before using. Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub onto your hands/feet/elbows and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. The scrub will tighten on your skin. Leave on for 3-4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing.

Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipes

Brown Sugar Body ScrubWe know the perfect way to relax after a long day of baking! Try this luxurious homemade spa treatment using a delicious aromatic blend of Dark or Light Brown Sugar, moisturizing oils and fresh fragrances. You can also create this homemade sugar scrub, as a thoughtful, low-cost gift that will make your friends feel a little sweeter!

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

1/2 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup ground oatmeal
1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 cup almond oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Small containers with lids


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.

Honey Almond Sleepy Sugar Scrub:


Mix about 3 parts white sugar and 1 part honey.
2 Tablespoons tea (I brewed an extra strong cup of Sleepy Time tea)
1 Teaspoon almond extract. You could also use an essential oil here instead.
The consistency: Not oily runny everywhere, like the honey won’t mix all the way in.
Not breaking apart and lumpy like there is too much sugar:)
------------------------------------------







Vanilla Almond Brown Sugar Scrub:
Mix about 3 parts brown sugar and 2 parts olive oil
2 packets instant oatmeal (or about 1 cup oats)
Handful of almonds
1 teaspoon almond extract or an essential oil
Mix all in a food processor, or beat a bunch with a spoon (and chop the almonds)
This consistency will be more grainy , but should still have a little movement in it.
You really can’t mess this up…if in doubt, use it yourself and see if your hands feel too oily afterwards.
If so, add more oats or sugar…

--------------------------------------------------------
Application:

Gently apply to wet skin in a circular motion, concentrating on dry patches and rough areas of your skin. Avoid using the scrub on sensitive areas, in cuts or on skin that is irritated or sunburned. Sugar scrubs are also not recommended for the face. Thoroughly rinse with warm water.


Caution: the oil in the sugar scrub can cause the tub to become slippery.


Have fun creating your own signature body scrub by experimenting with various scents from essential oils like grapefruit, lavender or peppermint, found in specialty markets or crafts stores. If you add any natural fruit or dairy products to your scrub, we recommend you refrigerate for up to two weeks.


Tips:

A little goes a long way with the sugar body scrub when giving as gifts. Use small mason jars or washed out baby food jars as containers. Decorate the lids buy cutting out fabric scraps in a circle shape about 2 inches larger than the lid. Glue the fabric to the lid, then tie a pretty coordinating ribbon, gathering the fabric, around the neck of the jar. Be sure to include a small tag with the application instructions and don’t forget to let the recipient know that you were the one sweet enough to make these for them!
