Making your own "orange sugar scrub" is so easy and fun to give as gifts. All you need are these simple supplies and a few minutes to prepare this cheery body product:
- Measure out your sugar.
- Add ground, dried orange peel.
- Stir in orange, coconut, and olive oils (*see note below).
- Pour into container and label with love.
*Note: If the mixture is too dry, add a little more oil. If it is too oily, add more sugar until you reach the desired consistency.
Directions for Use: In the shower, massage a small handful of scrub all over wet skin (avoiding sensitive areas, concentrating on dry ones), rinse off and pat dry. Don't wipe away the oil feeling since this will keep you moisturized without applying lotion. Suggested use is once a week. Not recommended for your face. Be careful as the tub may become slippery when using.
Our printable recipe and label (which fits perfectly on top of a regular-mouth mason jar) is shared HERE. You may want to download it and print it out for your herbal.
"A man ought to carry himself in the world as an orange tree would if it could walk up and down in the garden, swinging perfume from every little censer it holds up to the air."
~ Henry Ward Beecher
