DIY Vanilla Latte Sugar Scrub

DIY Vanilla latte sugar scrubI love coffee. I don’t love it specifically for the caffeine either. I actually enjoy the smell and taste of it. I was planning to make sugar scrub this week since I haven’t made any in a while and decided to make a coffee-scented scrub. It smells wonderful and would make a great gift for the coffee lover in your life. Especially if they’re always on the move and could use some extra pampering.

If you plan to give the DIY vanilla latte sugar scrub as a gift, I wanted to make sure you could go the whole nine yards, soooooo I made you some cute labels for your jar. The rectangular label is 4×2″ and the round label is 4×4″.  You pick which one you’d like. Or maybe you want both because you plan to make more than one jar of these??

Step 3
Pick your choice of label, print it out, and stick it to your jar.

I used double sided tape to apply my label, but if you have label paper you could always print it on there.

(Ignore my bad label in the picture. My printer blows.)

Now you have your own coffee-scented sugar scrub. It smells good enough to eat. Actually, you could eat it if you wanted to.

Enjoy it, and be sure to let me know which label you prefer! I have a few more sugar scrubs planned and will make you labels for all of those as well.

 

 

DIY Citrus Body Scrub

DIY Citrus Body ScrubI love body scrub. The smell and the feeling are unbeatable. For me, body scrubs come in second (runner up to lip balm) in the beauty department. I’ve made my own sugar scrub before, but this time I wanted to try a different kind. I made a citrus scrub with lemon, orange, and honey.

There are actually some benefits of using body scrubs, in case you are interested. Honestly, I have no idea if the benefits are realistic but its worth a shot. you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen already. What do you have to lose?

Add your lemon and/or orange to your sugar. I didn’t measure it but I probably used a little less than 1/4 cup. Mix it up. You should have something that looks like the above photo.
