DIY VANILLA SUGAR SCRUB

We are one week out from Christmas, and I'm sure some of you are still finishing up your Christmas shopping. At this point you are probably needing to find easy and quick gift ideas and stocking stuffers. I've got you covered! I whipped up this sugar scrub a couple of weeks ago and have given it out to several people as part of their Christmas gifts! It is super simple and inexpensive to make. Plus, it's a great exfoliant for the skin!















WHAT YOU NEED: 
2 cups of sugar in the raw
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of olive, almond, or coconut oil
4 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Pick a vessel of your choice (I went with mini-mason jars) and fill it with your yummy smelling sugar scrub! Stuff the stockings, wrap the gifts, spread the cheer, and enjoy!

I've been following your blog for quite some time now, and I just love it. Like really, really love it. I love the simplicity & your authenticity. You share such fun ideas too! After seeing this post the other day, I decided I would make some to add to a few gifts, and it was stupid easy (always a win in my book when it comes to DIY). So thanks for the suggestion! I didn't make any to try myself yet, but I'm thinking that I'll have to use some of the leftover ingredients so that I can try it out :-)
