Hello festive friends! My week of handmade has continued with a great recipe I found for a festive sugar scrub that is now making its way in various states of bubble wrap and tissue paper to friends in far – and not-so-far – flung places in time for Christmas.
The recipe is really simple and it smells delicious. I had most of the ingredients in the cupboard although I’d never thought to combine them as beauty products before! I adapted my scrubs to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract in place of the cinnamon and it works really well. I gave it a wee test on my hand first and the olive oil left my skin super soft.
I got some great airtight glass jars to hold my scrubs but you can easily jazz up some well-cleaned jam jars. Add some ribbon et voila – a lovely present! (I must confess, I’m so fond of this new find I’m going to be ‘gifting’ a jar to myself as well!)
Not long to go now until the big day! Hope you are all enjoying the Christmas countdown and making the most of each and every mulled wine / mince pie opportunity that comes your way! Thanks to Faye Knows Best and the folks over at Superscrimpers for this great recipe! Have you ever tried your hand at making beauty products from your storecupboard staples? I’d love to hear your recipes! xx
