How to make sugar scrub:
- 1 cup cane sugar
- 1 cup freeze-dried strawberries
- 3/4 cup coconut oil, room temperature
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
Measure one cup of freeze-dried strawberries and add to a food processor. Turn them into a fine dust then pour into a bowl.
Add in your cane sugar. NOTE: I like to use all organic ingredients when making beauty products but you can choose any that you would like.
Add the coconut oil and vanilla to the bowl. I like to work with the coconut oil at room temperature so that it is fairly solid. You could also melt it if desired.
Mix everything together really well. You have now learned how to make sugar scrub. Yes it is in fact that easy! Read on to get a link to more recipes to try as well!
One recipe above makes enough for both of the small mason jars pictured. You can half or double the recipe as required.
Pour your sugar scrub into a jar for gift giving. In this case, I decorated the top with a heart sticker and some pink card stock. You can try this for Valentine’s Day or another look for any other occasion.
