Did you get up this morning thinking "Oh Sweet Jesus" Christmas is a day away and I still need to get a couple of gifts, or oh crap, I ran out of money and can't afford to buy another gift. Well since I have that pesky thing called a mortgage, (would you believe that bank has the nerve to want it every month) and I'm on a budget, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on Christmas this year but I still wanted to give my friends gifts they would love. Let's face nothing is worst than a scrappy gift.
I like a good sugar scrub and I started shopping around for a sugar scrub to give as gifts, but those suckers aren't cheap. So of course I thought why not make my own because I roll like that. I did a little research and there so many recipes for sugar scrubs to choose from. I tweeked the recipes and came up with my own.
Here's my recipe
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon essential oil ( you can buy this at Michael's or a health food store)
3/4 cup extra virgin oil
In a small bowl, combine the brown and white sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to blend well. Spoon the scrub into a pretty glass jar and viola, great gift for less than $3.00. I also created my own label to add to the jar.
