Looking for a quick and easy wonderful gift? Try making some homemade sugar scrub. It’s easy, fast, and wonderful.
Here is what you need (this is enough to make 4-5 jars, depending on your size of jar):
- 3 1/2 cups coconut oil
- 2 cups of sugar
- 10 drops of essential oils
- 1 TBSP of Grapeseed oil
Place the coconut oil in the blender and mix for 1 min, then gradually add in the sugar a cup at a time and continue mixing. Add in the essential oils and grapeseed oil and blend well. Spoon the mixture into a glass mason jar and pretty it up with a gift tag and ribbon.
For this mixture I used the following essential oils:
- Cinnamon Bark Oil (8 drops)
- Black Pepper Oil (4 drops)
- Frankincense Oil (4 drops)
- Lemongrass Oil (4 drops)
You can use whatever mixture you like depending on who or what occasion you are gifting it for. I choose this combination for great skincare and for more of a warm/spicey smell (mostly from the cinnamon) since it was for Christmas. Please also note you should use therapeutic grade oils.

For the containers, I used the Half Pint Mason Jars from Ball. I find the wide mouth jars work better for usability. I also laminated the labels before sliding them in the jar top. since more than likely the scrub will be used in the shower it’s great to have the label waterproof.

Can you believe that this is the last Christmas in this decade?! Where has the time gone? I have teamed up with some pretty generous bloggers for the 6th annual Christmas Blessings Giveaway with the hopes of making this a Christmas to remember for TWO families as we close out this decade.
While we wish we could bless many more families, we were able to come up with a big prize for TWO families – $500 each (delivered via Paypal) – that we pray will make a big difference in their lives this Christmas season – whether it’s to fulfill their kids’ Christmas wishes, pay off some bills, or to help build some savings, our prayer is that it helps to lessen any financial burden and/or fills a specific need.
There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning! I know it can seem tedious and time-consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $500 worth it? I think it is!
Plus, all of these amazing bloggers donated their own money toward the cash prizes, so this giveaway wouldn’t be possible without them. I hope you’ll take the time to check out each one. Who knows, maybe you will find some new blogs to follow.
