Sugar Scrub

There are several sugar scrubs on Pinterest.

Here’s what I  did with the following ingredients:


Dawn with Olay Hand Renewal

A cute Mason Jar

1.  I filled the jar with sugar, to the first ridge.  Leaving room to stir.

2.  Then I poured in the Dawn.

3.  Stir well.

4.  Add more sugar and stir, if needed.

I used the round white Avery labels, I bought mine at Walmart.

I packed them back in to their box, took them to the store and gave my Painting Friends a little gift for Christmas! 

These are the cutest, easiest, most useful gifts!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the  families of the Victims of Sandy Hook.

I think of my own grandsons, the school they attend is the same grade/age range as Sandy Hook and my heart breaks thinking of these families.  



  1. Hi! This looks awesome, and I really want to make some for my mom. Can i use a different kind of of soap or something because my mom would get suspicious if i asked for soap at the store. lol

  2. where did you find the cute little mason jars?

  3. Can this be used as a full body scrub?

  4. I made this last Christmas and added coconut oil to mine. An other plus is, if you mix it with your hands, they’re smooth as silk whrn you finish. 🙂

  5. There’s nothing better than a good sugar scrub – everyone needs some pampering!
    Wishing you a very merry Christmas Debbie!

  6. I love this gift idea!!! I am so trying this!!!!

  7. Thanks Debbie! I’m so lucky to have my very own jar. Yes, my painted hands thank you too 🙂

  8. What a great idea, Debbie! My teacher friends would love something like this! Thanks for sharing ~ xo Heidi

    PS — I’ve been so heavy hearted as I look at my little preschoolers this week; yesterday during our Christmas program we all wore ribbons in memory of the Sandy Hook victims. Just can’t wrap my head around such a tragedy.

  9. How CUTE and practical!
    After reading the comments I see that the colored jars had a colored Dawn liquid. That’s easy!!!!
    Why might I want to add more sugar? Is there a consistency that is needed?
    And how do you use the scrub? (I hope that doesn’t seem to obvious to everyone else?) 😀

  10. I can’t wait to try this!!! Wish I had seen it before now to give to my ladies bible study – always a Happy New Year gift!

  11. What a fast, fun simple gift. So thoughtful though!!

  12. What a great idea to make your own scrub! I am always looking for simple, homemade gifts. Love your idea!

  13. isn’t this the best stuff ever – so pampering yet so easy!! I love to make it with brown sugar too! something very cozy about this version in the wintertime! http://www.northerncottage.net/2011/12/polishing-skin-scrub.html

    happy day to you!

  14. What a great present and I love your personalized gift tags too. I will by pinning and copying!

  15. How would you add color or fragrance ?
