This is a nice little gift that you can make with ingredients found in your kitchen. There are several variations of this scrub found all over Pinterest but I chose an easy recipe with a few ingredients.
Combine the following ingredients in a bowl and then spoon into sealable glass jars.
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp Cinnamon

These make great stocking stuffers or would look cute as part of a gift basket. With Christmas coming up next week it is a great gift for anyone who deserves a little pampering.

I didn’t have any real vanilla but if you do I would definitely recommend using it over the imitation for a stronger delicious smell. Mine smells mostly like olive oil. I couldn’t fit it all in the jars so I got to try it out and it left my skin feeling very soft.

Homemade gifts can be fun to make and offer an inexpensive alternative to store bought items. Plus you can customize the scrub and packaging however you’d like.

Tune in for more simple projects to brighten up your holidays!

I hope you have crafty Christmas!

    I don’t get it. You put the mixture on your skin? Why don’t you change the name to brown sugar spread and eat it on toast?
