How to Make Easy Sugar Scrub Jars
Kelly, from North Country Nest, has created a DIY sugar scrub with a lavender vanilla scent. Lavender and vanilla. Doesn’t that sound like a lovely combination? It’s the perfect mix of an aromatic summer herb with the warmth and familiarity of the classic vanilla scent.
In her post, Kelly details exactly what you will need to make your own lavender and vanilla sugar scrub.
Having recently completed my first set of peppermint bath bombs, making sugar scrub is also on my DIY list. I love the idea of handmade bath products as gifts. They are practical and affordable, while also being easily customized. For example:
- Christmas – use peppermint and evergreen scents
- Mother’s Day – use floral scents
- Birthdays – choose the individuals favorite scent
- Valentine’s – use romantic scents like rose or lavender.
Truthfully, the possibilities are endless.
