Sugar scrubs have always been my luxury item. Because they usually come at a seriously luxury price.
For too long I either denied myself any sugar scrub treats at all or I made do with cheap, inferior ones.
And then I found the frugal way to have as many sugar scrubs as my heart desires – make my own! Now there is no stopping me. But I don’t just make them for myself, that would be rather selfish don’t you think?
Sugar scrubs are the perfect gift at Christmas time and for a beautiful birthday treat for your girl friends and family. They smell great, they look great and they feel great. They are a little bundle of greatness, fullstop.
And always one to keep an eye on effort, I love the fact that making a sugar scrub doesn’t take too much time nor do you need a ton of weird and wonderful ingredients.
Why not choose 3 or 4 and make them for your family and friends this Christmas? They will be over the moon for such a sweet smelling pot of gorgeous sugar scrub and won’t believe how easily you made it.
