30 Days in Handmade November – Day #4

One item that all women love is bath products.  And natural bath products are an added bonus – especially when the cost factor is almost nil.

This sugar scrub is one that I use almost once a week.  I love how smooth it makes my legs feel.  I’ve even blogged about this before.  But, how cute would a jar of this be wrapped with pretty Christmas fabric and a tag?  I made plain tags for the top of my jars that I gave to my moms at our August Mom Night…and they were pretty cute. =)

Here is the recipe from militaryfit-bombshell.tumblr.com

1/2 c of oil – go for the higher end oils like extra virgin olive or coconut or almond oil.

1 1/4 c of sugar

3 Tbsp of lemon juice

How easy is that?  Seriously.  And, if you really want to add to your scrubs you use essential oils to give added scents.  Check out these other blogs for more great scrub recipes.
