I knew when I decided on the bathtime theme that I wanted to give party favors that were a DIY bath product. A sugar scrub seemed the easiest and least expensive. Boom. I was sold.
raw sugar (turbinado sugar)
oil (mineral or vegetable oil)
1. Mix together sugars in 1:1 ratio. Because I was making a big batch for party favors, I mix 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar with 1 1/2 cup raw sugar.
|At this point, all I really wanted to do was eat the sugar...It's so pretty! And tasty!|
2. Pour oil into the sugar mixture. I used olive oil because it was the only thing in the house and I was way too lazy to run out for the third time that day. Add oil to make the mixture the consistency you want. I poured a little bit of oil at a time and let it sink through the sugar. Mix the oil and sugar together. Add more oil as you desire. If you add too much oil, just add more sugar in a 1:1 ratio.
|I sat and watched the oil sink in for a solid minute. It was kind of mesmerizing.|
4. Spoon sugar scrub into your container.
I made the "Thank You"s with a cheap stamp and ink pad I bought at Hobby Lobby. I stamped onto a sheet of pink card stock, cut around each stamp, and punched a hole in the top. The little containers are from Hobby Lobby, as well. I thought they were seriously cute and perfect for this project!
|Forgive the bad lighting. I did this one night while watching White Collar.|
I would definitely recommend using this on your legs before you shave for an extra smooth shave. Because of the large granules, I would not use this on my face. Ouch!
