Homemade Sugar Scrub

Mason Jars. You could practically put {anything} inside of one, give it to me & I would be thrilled. There's just something very classic about it. Another thing I really like? A good, old fashioned handmade gift. Whatever it is, you can almost feel the love that went into the making.

A few years ago I gave these out for Christmas. This Easter, I made Homemade Sugar Scrubs for my mom & aunts. The ingredients are basic & the scrubs were a big hit...packaged in mason jars, of course!

  1. Assemble your supplies: mason jar, sugar, dish soap {I'm using Dawn Cucumber Melon}
  2. Fill your jar 3/4 full of sugar, 1/4 with dish soap.
  3. Stir contents {using a butter knife to do this works for me}
  4. If the scrub seems too thin, add more sugar. If it is too thick, add more soap.
  5. Once you have reached a consistency you like, cap it off & you're all done!

This scrub is a great exfoliator! Use it to remove grime after a day working in the garden, as a nice shaving scrub for your legs while in the tub, or simply a daily hand treatment to soften dry skin. Try different dish soaps for varying fragrance & color. For enhanced skin-soothing hydration, add a few drops of olive oil.

  1. This is such a simple recipe! I've thought about doing some sugar scrubs with olive oil and some essential oils, but this sounds so much easier! :) Great post!
