Sugar Scrub Gifts!

Sugar Scrubs are such a nice treat for your body!  They exfoliate your skin and make you feel soft and touchable.  What a great gift to give at a FRACTION of the cost!  How does $1.14 a 1/2 pint jar sound (compared to $8 - $38 for store bought brands).

Here's what you'll need for ONE jar:

  • 1- 1/2 pint jelly jar
  • 10 starkist mints
  • 1/3-3/8 cup of baby oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Food processor or mallet (to finely crush mints)

With your food processor (or mallet-depending on your frustration level at the moment) finely crush your mints.

I've tried this a few different ways, and found the easiest, in my opinion.  Put either your sugar  OR your mints in first, then the baby oil, then your last ingredient.

put the lids on and shake it up!  Add a ribbon or piece of fancy fabric to the top (between the lid and the ring) and you've got the easiest spa gift on the planet!!

Pair it with your favorite EASY PEASY HANGING HAND TOWEL as a over achiever gift!
