I recently shared some pictures of the gift wrapping effect I created for my friend Sarah-Faye’s birthday present, and now it’s time to share what’s inside!
Homemade, simple and gentle on all skin types – super easy to make too!
Things You’ll Need…
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup baby oil
1/4 cup olive oil
a few drops of vanilla essence (I also added a few drops of Robertsons caramel essence)
a few drops of red food colouring
jar or container of choice
Mix scrub ingredients together in a bowl – add extra sugar if it’s looking a bit too wet, or extra oil if it looks too dry (it’s down to preference really, I prefer mine slightly more wet than dry) and if you want it a deeper shade of red, add some more food colouring (don’t worry about colouring staining your skin, the oil in the mixture will prevent this, however your bath water might become a bit pink!)
Decant into a cute jar or container, decorate with washi tape (I used black and white chevron tape from Doolally Daisy) and anything else you want to, and voila, a great little gift for a special friend. Alternatively, run a bath and treat yourself!
- Use scrub on dry skin and then rinse off with water
- To maintain hygiene, a scoop or spoon should be used to lift the scrub out of it’s container
- It’s recommended that most homemade scrubs should be used within 4 weeks, although the ingredients in this one should keep for a while
- You might want to include a label/tag with the gift that lists the ingredients used (in case people have allergies that you dont know about etc – rather safe than sorry!)
