Sugar Scrub and Free Labels
This winter has been so brutal on my skin. I normally have dry skin throughout the year but it gets really bad during the winter. One thing that really helps it is exfoliating. So, with that in mind I decided to make up some sugar scrubs and free labels to have on hand for myself as well as for a gift if needed. I just used some on my hands and they look and feel so much better. I found that I got the best results by following up the scrub with my favorite cleander (to get any external remaining oils off my skin) and then moisturizing. These make the perfect gifts. I got my jars at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each and they were perfect.
In a bowl I mixed all the ingredients and then added 1 drop of food coloring. Next I put it in my jar and dressed it up with a little bit of raffia and a tag. The scent I used on this one is Green Apple so I used green food coloring.
My printer needs ink so I didn’t put labels on my jars yet but I wanted to share the labels with you anyhow. I made 6 different colors. Each label is approximately 3 inches. Enjoy!

THANKS SO MUCH! I’ve been looking around for a recipe for this stuff and hope to try this out. I’m a big fan of Origins Incredible Spreadable Scrub in ginger. Like a spa in the shower. Did you use essential oils for fragrance?
Sabrina, I didn’t use essential oils (i’m too cheap! lol). I just picked up some fragrance in Hobby Lobby in the soap-making area. The bottle said good for Sugar Scrub (among other things) so I bought it. Seems to have worked great. 🙂
Thank you for this recipe it is awesome!
Cute little jar! I do the same thing with sugar and olive oil 🙂 My eczema LOVES it. The shower floor…not so much.
This is such a great recipe! I wonder -could you use less EVOO and use essential oils instead? :o)
This is absolutely adorable! Great idea for next year’s Christmas gifts! 🙂
I made some scrub this winter too. The candy cane sugar scrub recipe is on my blog if you’re interested. 🙂
Those labels are so cute! I love sugar scrubs – what a great recipe to try!
Oh and add a little smell…I love the essential oil lemon verbena. Yummy.
I have super dry hands in the winter (two diaper wearing toddlers means washing hands every 10 minutes), so I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for such a great idea!
Make me one!!! 🙂
