Need a Thoughtful Inexpensive Teacher Gift?

For Christmas I wanted something thoughtful, yet inexpensive to give to a few of my close coworkers.  Since I have been learning about essential oils, I recently attended a make-and-take party at which we made sugar scrub.  As a result, I decided to make sugar scrubs for my co-workers and decided to even take a scrub to a retirement party I am soon to attend.  For the retirement party, I put a label on the lid that says “Reti
rement is Sweet”.  Here is the one I am taking to the retirement party…

SugarScubRetirement-1Now the cute “handmade just for you” labels I found ready made at one of my favorite places–Hobby Lobby.  I made the sugar scrub labels/directions and you can download them here if you like.  They don’t really show in the above picture but they are behind the “handmade just for you” tag.

After considering many different recipes, I didn’t like the dryer feel of using a tablespoon of coconut oil so I made mine with almond oil.

Recipe:

Make sure you have two different bowls.  You will want a smaller one for the oil and a larger one for the sugar.  Use any combination of white and brown sugar you want.  I chose white sugar because I didn’t want to overwhelm the smell of the essential oils.  Brown sugar tends to do this.

I used 8oz. sized mason jars.

In the oil bowl:

I put ¼ cup of almond oil (available at health food stores such as whole foods).

5-8 drops of essential oils of your choice.

a few drops of Vitamin E oil

Stir the oil ingredients slowly in the oil bowl.

In the sugar bowl:

I put ¾ cup of sugar.

I slowly poured the oil into the sugar bowl and mixed with a fork until the oil was absorbed by the sugar little by little.

To complete, I spooned the sugar scrub mixture into the mason jar.  You can cut out pretty scrapbook paper to place underneath the ring of the mason jar.  To get a perfect circle just trace the flat circular lid.  Then attached pretty ribbon and the tags.
