Midwest Living Holiday Gift Guide 2012
Visions of sugar rubs
Give the gift of relaxation with seasonally scented body scrubs. They softly exfoliate, leave skin nourished and are oh-so-easy to make.
What you’ll need
Essential oils (try peppermint, cinnamon or sweet orange)
Mix 1-1/2 cups of sugar with 1/3 cup of olive oil. For chocolate, add 2 tablespoons cocoa. Add 2 to 3 drops of desired essential oil and a few drops of food coloring for a festive hue. Spoon scrub into crafts store jars and tie on decorative labels.
