Easy DIY Body Scrub

16 December 2013
Just in time for the holidays, I have an easy do-it-yourself gift idea for you! Last year's hot cocoa mix gifts (here) were so fun to make, I wanted to make something again this Christmas for our friends and family. 
I love a good body scrub and best of all, this all-natural recipe can be made with everyday items from your kitchen.

Other than the recipe ingredients (below), all you need is a small glass jar (here), gift tags (mine were from Marshall's, but these printable tags would be perfect), and ribbon - I paired green velvet with a shimmery gold from Michael's.

Below is the "recipe" for your body scrub - all you have to do is mix all ingredients in a large bowl and divide among the jars. To fill 10 small jars, I recommend making 2-3 batches.

This might be just the thing, since it is quickly becoming evident that I was a leeeeetle too ambitious about the holidays this year :)
