1. Collect your materials- all you need for this gift is a pretty jar, sugar (brown, white or both), and some type of oil (I chose to use coconut but anything you have on hand will work).

2. Mix together equal parts sugar and oil.

3. Stir in any additions you might want.

4. Spoon the mixture into a pretty jar, add a ribbon and you’re done!


This recipe creates a basic sugar scrub, but feels free to make changes according to your mom’s preferences. Try adding drops of vanilla and almond extract or various spices, such as cinnamon or pumpkin pie, to create different scents. Your scrub is sure rival any expensive, store-bought one. You might even want to make some extra and bottle it up for yourself!
