We think these will go down a treat for the people in your life who don't necessarily want to eat something you have made, but still love a homemade and well thought out gift! You could make all three or just go with one of your favourites. Place them in jars, wrap with loads of ribbon and a handwritten tag with instructions on the use and voila. Pretty, homemade, calorie free, and really summertime ready skin coming up!
Some important info;
How often should you use a Christmas sugar scrub?
Use the DIY sugar scrub a maximum of 2 to 3 times a week. Over-exfoliating can irritate the skin. If you have sensitive skin, limit the use to once a week.
Can I use them on my face?
No, this scrub is not suitable for the face. The sugar granules are too coarse for facial applications and could damage the delicate skin of your face. We also suggest keeping them away from your other bits that may be sensitive to things like peppermint oil for example!
Always use a spoon or spatula to remove body scrub from the jar. It’s very important not to get water into the product during use or it will simply end up as a syrup.
Store your essential oil sugar scrub in a cool, dry place.
Chose a waterproof, airtight container. Humidity may cause the sugar to clump and harden.
Keep the scrub away from sunlight and any heat sources. Heat and sunlight can break down the essential oils.
