DIY Handmade Sugar Scrub Recipe for Christmas gifts

by Melissa Vines

Need a handmade gift idea? This Sugar Scrub recipe is perfect for that! It is my tried and true body scrub recipe that I once sold in my brick and mortar apothecary shop in Leiper's Fork, TN years ago. It was a customer favorite for sure!

Vanilla Sugar Scrub

5 1/2 oz organic sugar (cane or brown)

2 oz olive oil, avocado oil or fractionated coconut oil

1 Tblsp melted Shea butter (secret ingredient, don't skip it!)

1 tsp Vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. 

*optional: Lavender or Peppermint essential oil, 1/2 tsp lavender flowers makes a lovely addition too.
