Get your supplies and mix some up! This is a part of mason jar week this week. You can scroll to the bottom of this post to see the ideas from today.

Brown Sugar Scrub Ingredients:
- Apple essential oil (You can see my tips for buying essentials oils inexpensively here.)
- Butter extract
- 1 c. brown sugar (NOTE: I like to use organic products for skincare.)
- ½ c. olive oil
Instructions for making brown sugar scrub:
In a small mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of brown sugar and ½ cup of olive oil. If the mixture is too runny for your liking, add in a bit more brown sugar until you reach a consistency you are happy with.
I like mine thicker actually but you may like a thinner version.
Pour in a little butter extract. A little goes a long way with this extract, so be careful not to add too much.
Add in several drops of apple essential oil.
Mix well to combine your scrub.
Add it to a mason jar and use for yourself or give as a gift.

- Mason jar I used the Ball sharing jars because of their pencil like shape.
- Pink fabric
- Yellow ribbon
- Fiber fill
- Printed pineapple tags
- Hole punch
- Start by adding your sugar scrub to your jar. I wanted the gift to look as much like a pencil as possible so I made an eraser top. Just use a small piece of pink fabric cut slightly larger than my mason jar lid with scissors.
- I then added a small amount of fiber fill under the fabric and put the lid on the jar as shown below.
- You will also need to print the pineapple tags, cut out using scissors, and punch a hole in the top. Then tie this around your jar using some yellow ribbon.
