Looking for excellent Christmas gifts for the beauty enthusiast on your list, try these sugar scrubs! They are great for exfoliating the skin and helping to moisturise dry skin. This recipe allows you to use just the right amount without exposing the rest to excess moisture while in the tub or shower!
• 1/4 cup Carrier Oil of choice
• 1/2 cup Shredded Soap (glycerin soap base works well)
• 3–4 drops of your favourite Essential Oil
• 1 cup Sugar
Pour the oil into a bowl and add the shredded soap of your choice. Microwave this on high for 10 second intervals, stirring in between each. Or use the double boiler method. When the mixture is melted and stirred together, add the Essential Oils. Once the sugar is added, the scrub will harden VERY quickly, so you will want to get the mixture into the mould as soon as possible. Let cubes harden by popping them into the freezer for at least 30 minutes. Remove them from the mould (if your mould is large, you may want to cut into smaller pieces). Store in an airtight container.
