*DO IT YOURSELF EASY BODY SCRUB
Do you have any gifts to get for a female family member or a teacher? For us teacher gifts get costly because my daughter is in Kindergarten and has 4 of them. We needed to think of something creative and thoughtful. So we decided to make our own body scrub. It is easy and very cost efficient, plus you will know and all of the ingredients inside of it. What is nice is that your kids can help you make this. My daughter and I made a tag to attach on the body scrub. I had her write her teacher’s name on the front of the tag (she is only 4) and I wrote the ingredients on the back. You could always add a tin of homemade cookies with this gift. I didn’t make cookies because I would literally eat the whole tray after baking them. I am really bad with sweets! Here is the scrub recipe below. I listed the cheapest place to get the items if you don’t have them laying around your pantry. This stuff smells soooo good!
What You’ll Need (Enough for 1 Jar)
2 Cups of brown sugar ($1 at Dollarama)
1 Cup of granulated sugar ($1 at Dollarama. One pack can be used to make two servings)
1 tbsp of pure vanilla extract (Your local grocery store or big box store)
1 cup of olive oil ($2 at Dollarama)
A ribbon (At Dollarama)
A large Mason jar ($1.50 at Dollarama)
In a bowl mix the brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix until blended. Add the vanilla and the oil. Mix it up.
Spoon it in to your jar. Close the jar.
Tie ribbon around the jar. For a more personal touch, cut out a tag and hole punch it or tape a ribbon to it. If your child is old enough you can get them to write their teacher’s name on it and write the ingredients on the back.
