Craft Idea: Ah, Sugar Sugar

An easy DIY to smooth your skin that just about anyone can make.

Here’s a simple recipe for a DIY strawberry sugar scrub anyone can make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1 cup freeze-dried strawberries
  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract or your favorite essential oil
  • Mini mason jars

What to do:

  • Put strawberries in a sealed baggy and use a tilling pin to crush them into small fragments.
  • In a small bowl, combine crushed strawberries and cane sugar.
  • Add coconut oil and either vanilla extract or essential oil (to give your scrub the scent of your choice) and mix well.
  • Spoon your scrub into the mason jars and seal.

Sound fun? It’s also a great gift idea. Here are some extra tips:

  • Add decorative labels or bows to make your scrubs “gift-ready.”
  • Any DIY bath product with sugar can attract ants. Be sure to properly seal your own scrub and rinse the tub after use.
  • Brown sugar is less abrasive and is a good alternative for sensitive skin.
