Holiday Spice Sugar Scrub

DIY Holiday Spice Sugar Scrub

Guest post from of Stacy of No Fuss Natural

Sugar scrubs are one of my favorite homemade gifts to give because even though they are so simple to make, they still convey thoughtfulness and care.

Making sugar scrub is quick and easy —  measure the ingredients, stir to combine, and you are good to go! It will probably take longer to label the jar than it will to make the scrub. Plus, sugar scrub recipes are easy to double, triple, or quadruple so you can make gifts for a lot of people in just a few minutes.

The following recipe creates a sugar scrub that smells just like the holidays. It is a treat for tired hands and feet and would be a wonderful gift on any occasion.

  • Love this post, Stacy (and Crystal)!! I am using your book to make almost all my Christmas gifts this year for the ladies in my family (and my hubby’s teacher co-workers and some neighbors)! This particular recipe is on my list to make because I always have the ingredients on hand! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for this, Stacy! Now THIS is something I could see myself doing when I have some time off work. I love love love the holiday scents (sign me up for christmas tree scents and cinnamon any day). And I think I have most of these ingredients around the kitchen somewhere – always a plus.

    I don’t think this delicious scrub would make it past my mouth 😉

  • Jennifer says:

    This sounds wonderful! Does this need to be refrigerated or will it keep at room temp for 6 mos? Thanks!

  • Kimberly says:

    Homemade scrubs are wonderful but please be careful. When you are using a product that is going to have water introduced to it even it’s not part of the ingredients (and scrubs will, with wet hands, from the shower water, etc) bacteria can become an issue if you’re not using a preservative. You can’t always see or smell the bacteria that is brewing in your product like you can when it goes rancid or grows mold. I had a business making and selling these types or products for several years and any product that is made to be applied to the skin needs to be well researched and safely formulated before giving away (or selling).

  • Does this recipe make enough to fill a 1/2 pint mason jar like pictured?

  • I just made a batch with my children. It’s a keeper! I’ll be keeping this bath and making a huge batch for friends and neighbors. Thank you for sharing!
