Cherry Sugar Scrub Recipe {homemade gift idea}

Cherry sugar scrubs are easy to make, package adorably and are good for your skin!  Homemade scrubs are one of the best gifts ever!  They are my new latest craze {as you know} and after the recent success of my Lemon Sugar Scrub for Mother’s Day gifts, and my Coffee Sugar Scrub for Teacher Appreciation I decided to go all out and try 6 more fruity sugar scrubs!  So, here’s an easy-peasy, cherry sugar scrub recipe (with FREE printable tag) that’s perfect for gift giving!

Cherry Sugar Scrub

I’ve been making a lot of sugar scrubs in little batches, and this recipe filled up the fun shaped bottle I found at Michael’s.  I’ve had so much fun finding interesting containers to put sugar scrubs in!  The recipe is super simple.  I love that sugar scrubs can be used on the hands, feet and body.  I like to use sugar scrubs in the shower because they are such great exfoliators and the hot water dissolves the sugar crystals before they can be too abrasive.

Cherry Sugar Scrub Recipe

Mix Together {this recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups prepared}

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (or canola oil will work fine!), plus 1 TBS
  • 2-3 drops of cherry aromatherapy oil
  • approximately 10 drops of red soap colorant (I purchased a pack of 4 colors at Michaels for $4.00)

Decorate Jar

I used embellishments I had at home to decorate the jar.  A ribbon and twine I had in my craft supply closet were used to tie on the “Cherry Sugar Scrub” tag.  The tag was designed by Tricia Rennea exclusively for Seven Clown Circus, and can be downloaded for free!  The sugar scrub was super easy to make and the whole project took me a total of 20 minutes including tying on the printable!  It’s THAT easy.

 

That’s it!  The Cherry Sugar Scrub is read to use or give as a gift!
