Super Easy Sugar Scrub

I very well may be the last person to try this great idea. I've seen several bloggers posting about making different kinds of sugar and salt scrubs for Mother's Day and teacher gifts. But, this one has to be the best one I've seen yet. The girls and I made several jars of this together for some special people and I'm telling you, this HAS to be the easiest way to make a sugar scrub. If you haven't yet tried it, here's how it's done...

You'll need jars, basic granulated sugar, and some soap. I used these cute short 8-oz. Mason jars I found at Wal-Mart (You can also buy them online here!) And for the soap, I used Lemon Dawn because I love the lemon scent. A moisturizing dish soap or other liquid soap would also work well.

All you do is fill your jar approximately 3/4 full of sugar.

Then, just fill it the rest of the way with the soap.

Mix it well with a butter knife and that's it!

To use it, just rub it all over your hands, then rinse it off. Perfect for removing dirt and exfoliating your skin. We all tried it out when we were done and it works great! Ours are all wrapped up, tagged, and ready to be given out. My sister already made some for her girls' teachers, too! Mom, just act surprised when you get some, okay?


  1. You're definitely not the last person to make this - because this is the first time I've seen this! How easy peasy (as my daughter would say)! I can't wait to try it and make it for a few gifts. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is a great gift! I love me some sugar scrubs!

  3. This is a great idea, I think my boys would love to help me with this (although too much sugar would probably get eaten:)!!!

  4. I'm going to have to try to make this for my girls - they love this type of stuff!

    Found you on New Friend Friday.

  6. Julie,

    I love the jars that you used. So much easier with a wide open mouth. Glad to see that you and your girls had a fun time with it.

    Thanks so much for linking back to me.

  7. great idea! I have to try some of that. Have a great day!
    I found you on new-friend-friday!

  8. This is a great "formula" too. I almost like this one more than the one I featured because the ingredients are more simpler. Thanks for linking up!

  9. Thanks so much for stopping by this week to take a look at my framed silhouette project. If you decide to make one, I'd love to see. :)

    Have a marvelous Mothers' Day!

  15. Just made your scrub! So easy thank you! I found a couple of jars at Goodwill for .50 each. Used my circut and cut a circle to cover the name on the lid, then cut out the words "Garden Scrub" for the side. Turn out really cute! Include it in a "garden theme" basket. Thanks

  16. What a great idea and a perfect gift. Thanks for linking up to Saturday is Crafty Day!

  17. OK you are not the last person to do this I am, and now I am completely addicted to making this stuff! Could you please tell me what paper you used for the tags. They are the cutest! Thanks, Sandy

  18. I know this is way late, but I just used the scrub Lily gave me last year, because my hands are super rough! I LOVE IT!!! Now I want to make it for everyone I know!


I love hearing from each of you and will do my best to respond! Thanks so much for stopping by. So glad you're here!
