...Vanilla Lemon Sugar Scrub!
I made this for all the ladies in the fam. It's pretty aswesome.
I used a combination of recipes. This one from Brandy at Gluesticks. And this one from Maggie at It's a Lunsford Thing.
I didn't take notes while I was altering the recipes, but luckily it isn't an exact science. Wing it.
I was making enough to fill the six jars above. I guesstimated the amount I'd need.
2 Cups(ish) White Sugar
2 Cups(ish) Brown Sugar
1 Cup(ish) Oil (I used olive oil)
1-2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tsp Vanilla (or a drop of Vanilla Oil)
Mini Drop of Rosemary
I mixed the sugars first, then added the oil, lemon juice, vanilla and rosemary.
It looked a little runny at first, so I continued adding stuff until it looked 'right.' I wasn't really sure what 'right' was, but eventually it resembled something someone might use as body scrub.
Gluesticks linked me to Mean Mommy Academy, where I found the great labels I used. I added some hemp twine and a tongue depresser thingymajiggy.
They turned out pretty swell, I think.
**I used the leftovers in the shower and that taught me a few things...first I found that a lot of the sugar settles. Even after mixing it up a bit, it still helps to drain a little oil off the top. Which probably means I used too much oil to begin with. I also learned that pouring the oil out on the shower floor could make a serious slippery hazard. But, it works wonders for the skin. So super soft.
