Every year it seems, my boss and I are astonished by how dry our skin becomes in the winter. We chat about it like it’s something new. This year I was determined to keep my skin looking healthy all year long. I started looking for moisturizing sugar scrubs with natural ingredients everywhere I went and then continued my search online. I did come across a few beautiful scrubs, but they were pretty expensive.
I’ve had great success with a homemade face wash recipe and quickly realized a homemade sugar scrub was easy, too. Essential oils can be a bit pricey, but pick a scent you love and it will last you through many batches. This sugar scrub comes together quickly and also makes a pretty cute gift. I tried it out as soon as the batch was finished and my hands are already thanking me.
I usually don’t get crafty, but with a little twine, some sprigs from my hearty lavender plant and washi tape, I now have a few jars that are dressed to impress. I can’t wait to share them with my best pals for Christmas.
