Making your own exfoliating body scrubs are a great homemade gift idea! I love the simlicity of this 2 ingredient recipe.
There are a TON of DIY scrub recipes out there, from lemon scrubs, vanilla, lavender, brown sugar,etc.Some recipes even contain a bit of oil, but I'm pretty sure that no good can come from a thin coating of oil left on your shower floor,etc.
For this one, the ingredients are already things you have on hand and are quite economical.
Jan's Tips: Do as I say, not as I do! Don't use a glass jar for this, after I did, I realized that soapy glass jars and a wet shower just don't mix well! Pick a nice plastic container!
Also, since we are not cooking the sugar into a liquid, eventually the wash and sugar will separate, so just add a note to the gift tag to gently remix the scrub if needed.
2 Ingredient Body Scrub:
Jar/container Sugar (regular ol' sugar!)
Body wash of your choice or wanna know a great alternative? Dawn Hand Renewal dish soap w/Oil of Olay (Really, it's great for your skin!). I used a dollar store White Rain Pomegranate Body wash cause that was what I had on hand.
1) Pour sugar almost to top of jar/container:
