Who doesn’t need a little pampering in their life? Mix up a big batch of this orange creamsicle sugar scrub, put it into small mason jars and give this gift in a jar to the women in your life. The smell reminds me of summer and the coconut oil helps keep your skin soft and smooth!
I will be giving this gift in a jar to my mom as part of her Mother’s Day gift. To make the orange creamsicle sugar scrub, I used my recipe for Maple Brown Sugar Scrub but used fractionated coconut oil instead of olive oil. I really like fresh, clean citrus scents so I chose orange essential oil.
I also added vanilla extract to give it a creamsicle smell. I didn’t have any vanilla essential oil and didn’t feel like running back to the store but if you have some on hand, use several drops of that instead of the vanilla extract.
To make one 8 oz mason jar of orange creamsicle sugar scrub, you need 1/4 cup of fractionated coconut oil, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 10 drops of orange essential oil.
Put the fractionated coconut oil into the jar. Add the vanilla extract and the orange essential oil. Then, stir in the sugar, 1/4 cup at a time.
Print off this fun label and attach it to the jars. To print the labels, I opened a blank Word document, inserted the label image using Insert and choosing Picture. I resized the label to whatever would fit on my jar. If you are making more than one, copy and paste for however many labels you need. Then, add a couple pieces of baker’s twine around the lid or a strip of washi tape across the lid. You can download the free printable here: Orange Creamsicle Sugar Scrub Printable Label
I wish you could smell this sugar scrub! Vanessa asked me if it was edible and Christine said, “Yummmm!” and immediately wanted to try using it.
We have a jar of this in our bathroom and have been using it for the past couple of days. It makes your legs and feet feel amazingly smooth!
Just be careful though because products containing oil can make the shower/tub slippery!
