Gift Idea: Brown Sugar Scrub

This gift idea is PERFECT because it is inexpensive and quick to make, and will be sure to bring a smile to the recipient’s face! Is there a gal on the planet that doesn’t love sweet-smelling pampering products?

Make this super-simple brown sugar scrub using basic ingredients and a re-purposed canning or food jar (well-cleaned of course).
Note: I got this project idea from one of my FAVORITE blogs, The Idea Room

Here’s what you need:
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey

Mix the ingredients together and- that’s it! So easy. Just dress up your jar a bit and give it away or treat yourself. I LOVE this scrub because (aside from being pennies to make) it is natural-edible even, and does an incredible job exfoliating AND moisturizing the skin. Note: It will leave your skin a bit oily immediately after use, so you will probably want to wash with soap after.

Compare this to those expensive scrubs you purchase at bath & body stores.

Please enjoy and let me know how it turns out if you make a batch!
