Christmas Scrubs

DIY Christmas Scrubs With Printable Labels – Perfect Gift Idea

I’ve given this gingerbread sugar scrub to countless friends and it’s always the same thing – requests for more! LOL. As someone who won’t take a shower without a sugar scrub in hand, I understand completely.

Since we are working on Christmas scrubs, I decided to incorporate the scent of homemade cooking. A gingerbread exfoliating body scrub is as good as any other flavor I can think of! Of course, I also have lavender exfoliating cubes and blueberry sugar scrub on my site if you want to go for a completely different scent.   

But if you want to stay within that same holiday vein, then also check out my recipes for my warm vanilla sugar scrub gift ideas or my cranberry sugar scrub because honestly – you can’t get more fourth quarter than that!

How To Make Exfoliating Sugar Scrub

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Mixing with clean hands helps to warm up the coconut oil and blend it into the other ingredients.

Scoop into mason jars and attach lids tightly. (Jars shown in photo are Ball Collection Elite Design Series Half Pint Jars)

Cut out printed labels for jars. Use double-sided tape or a strong glue to place a label on top of each jar. You may also use a single hole punch to punch a hole in the top of the gift tag and wrap it on the jar using a thin ribbon.

How To Use Sugar Scrub

Gently apply a scoopful and scrub onto wet skin in a circular motion –concentrating on dry areas and rough patches. Rinse skin clean using warm water.

Sugar Scrub should be stored at room temperature and stays fresh for up to 4 weeks. What a great way to incorporate shower aromatherapy into your self-care routine.
