how to: sugar scrub

I posted a tutorial last year on how to make sugar scrub, and it was such a hit I decided to vlog about it.

Here I am, in all my excited glory, showing you how to make sugar scrub. This stuff makes a great holiday gift, I’m just saying.

Are you here from StumbleUpon?  Thanks so much for visiting!  If you like what you see, I have plenty more where this came from.  Use the FOLLOW US buttons on my blog to subscribeTHANK YOU!

Even if you choose not to make some and give it away, I highly recommend using some on yourself.

That sounded dirty, but I didn’t mean it.

  1. Cathy :

    I’ve had this bookmarked since you posted it last year! I’ll be making 12 cute little jars of it for the lovely ladies in my family. I’m excited to give it a try!

    • Allison :

      Cathy, I can’t wait to hear how it turns out. You’ll love the stuff.

  2. Christie :

    LOVE it. This would be a great project for me and my little girl to make for the “Grammies” in the family!

    • Allison :

      Yes! The Grammies, they love the moisture!

  3. Sarah Beck :

    I love this, I have been buying it like a sucker for so long.

    • Allison :

      You and me both sister, at Trader Joe’s for $10 a pop.

  4. Hope M. :

    I am loving this scrub and can’t wait to make it! Hopefully I’ll have time tonight. I’ve been looking for things like this but they all use stuff that’s not in the house. This is perfect though! Would love to hear more ideas like this! Thanks!

    • Allison :

      Hope, glad you like it!

  5. Marie :

    I LOVED this sugar scrub last year! I’ve got to make it for my family!! Great vlog!!

    • Allison :

      You do need to make it for your family, and re-fill your own stash!

  6. Melissa :

    I made a dozen jars of this sugar scrub using mineral oil and peppermint oil. I love it I love it. I can not wait to give them away this Christmas. I even made a big jar to keep for myself. Easy, quick and cheap. I used 4oz mason jars from Walmart and tied a thick hemp string around them to give them a rustic feel. Thank you for this “diy” tip.

  7. Chamu :

    Can we make this with only sugar & olive oil? I am not sure if I’ll find brown sugar in the place I live.

  8. Cher :

    If you wanted to use some essential oils, how much would you use? I love spicy, savory smells along with the sweet? Thanks for the suggestions in advance.
