I just found my new favorite gift to give. NOT KIDDING. I pinned THIS a while back, and FINALLY decided to follow through. I made Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub for the ladies I go visiting teaching too AND for Ms. Tonya the pre-school teacher extraordinaire. This was SERIOUSLY simple. Just mixing up oil and sugar and spice. I used Sunflower Oil by the way. The tutorial mentioned using vegetable oil, olive oil (kinda stinky), or many other kinds of oils. I found a huge bottle of Sunflower in the OIL aisle at Walmart for 3 bucks. That made it the winner for me!!!
If you have never used Sugar Scrub...you may not think this is such a great idea. BUT IT IS. I use this stuff on my dry scaly winter YUCKO hands and it works like a champ. You can also use it on your elbows and knees if they get yucky. I tend to crawl on the floor a lot with my kids or making crafts, so my knee caps are brown and dry. This stuff sluffs it right off. LOVE IT!!! SOOO if you are looking for a gift for a co-worker, friend, neighbor, or just someone with dry skin....THIS IS IT. BTW...I made one batch and filled one small, 2 medium, and 1 largish jars.original blogger also has printable tags. I printed them onto sticker paper and put the stickers right onto the jars and onto the lids. I LOVED THE STICKERS. It was much easier than using paper and adhesive and trying to attach them. Stickers worked like a charm!!!
I also found the scoops at Walmart. They came in a 3 pack (1small, 1medium, and 1 large) for about 3 bucks. I am not gonna lie. I pretty much think the scoops were the cutest part. Is that lame???? Maybe so, but I am a little lame I guess;) Do you know how lame I am???? Well lets just say that every time I look at this stuff or think about it I get a big smile. Sugar Scrub+Jessica=BFFs!!!
