Sugar shower scrub DIY

Hosted a wonderful little "sprinkle" this weekend.
I always feel it is nice to have something for your guest to leave with,
just as a small thank you for their time.

sugar shower scrub
{which was not easy to say every time someone left and I handed them one}

what you will need:
- sugar {i used raw for more of a SCRUB but you can use granulated}
- oil {I had almond, coconut would work or avocado, you can read the bottle
most will tell you if they are good for massage oils}
- scent
- jars
{variation of the original recipe I found on prudent baby}

- Pour your sugar in a bowl. Then you want to gradually add the oil, stir after each time you add it. Until you get a nice coated consistency.

- Add the scent, I would do a little first and just like the oil add as you go to make sure it is not too strong.

- Add to your jars and finish off with a little extra flare.

These would make great valentines day gifts.

I used a 32oz bag of sugar and was able to get 17 stage 2 baby food jars out of it
Oh and if you want a longer shelf life you will want to add a preservative.

I love this!! I saw it on a shower that was featured on Kate Landers Events and just thought
for sure I would have to do this for my girlfriends adoption shower ;) LOVE thanks for
posting the tutorial, which is ironic that I saw
this tonight because I just spoke with a friend
of mine who makes them (asking her to make them for my favors and what the cost would be etc) and didnt really dawn on me
that I could make them myself! DOH!
