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 & salt scrubs for Mother's Day & teacher gifts. But, the one that really caught my attention was this one done by Kate at the Gaines Gang. The girls & 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. In case you didn't see Kate's, here's how it's done:
You'll need jars, basic granulated sugar, & some soap. I used these cute short 8-oz. Mason jars I found at Wal-Mart. 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 & that's it!
To use it, just rub it all over your hands, then rinse it off. Perfect for removing dirt & exfoliating your skin. We all tried it out when we were done & it works great! Ours are all wrapped up & tagged & ready to be given out. My sister already made some for her girls' teachers, too! Mom, just act surprised when you get some, okay?
I'll link this to these parties, for those of you who haven't seen this before. You'll love it!
