The holidays are right around the corner, and you need a few small thoughtful gifts to give. Get your DIY hat on and create homemade sugar body scrub with good-for-you ingredients found right in your Flagstaff apartment pantry. Add a special "how to use" tag, tie with a bow, and you've created a gift that keeps giving.
What You'll Need to Create Your Homemade Sugar Scrub
You'll need a microwave-safe glass bowl, spatula, coconut oil, raw cane sugar or brown sugar, dried rosemary, and dried lavender. You'll also need small canning jars with lids or decorative glass jars with lids.
First, heat one and a half cups of coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds or until oil is completely melted. Add 2 pounds of raw cane sugar or brown sugar to the oil and combine by folding together with your hands or a spatula. Add 3 tablespoons of dried rosemary and 1/4 cup of dried lavender, and gently fold into sugar mixture. Divide and spoon into 5 jars.
Designing the Tag
Now, design a decorative "how to use" tag so the gift recipient will know what is in the mixture and how to properly use it. Find a large to-and-from tag or make one yourself using colorful card stock. Personalize the gift by handwriting these directions: "Apply a small spoonful of sugar body scrub to your skin with warm water. Rub gently into skin in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water to reveal smooth, exfoliated skin. Apply your favorite hand cream. Enjoy. Good-for-you ingredients: coconut oil, sugar, rosemary, lavender, and water. Made with love."
Wrap a ribbon around the jar and tie with a festive bow. This is the perfect gift for someone special, hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, or a gift to give yourself.
