I seen this on Pinterest when I was browsing or wasting many hours looking at pretty things!  I thought it looked really nice and it looked really easy to make as well so I decided to give it a go.

You can find the original post here

It is made up of the following:

Off I went in search of what I needed, I couldn’t find standard Baby wash, the only thing that seemed to be available was Baby soft wash.  I am not sure if it is the same thing but I thought I would buy it anyway and give it a try.

I also decided that I wanted to make the scrub a mint green colour as I found some labels to go on top of the jar from here which were more of a green colour and I thought it would look good together.

The ingredients on the original post are 2.5 cups of sugar, 0.25 cup of baby oil, 0.25 cup of baby wash and 1/2 drop of colouring.  For anyone in the UK, this works out as:

550g Sugar

75mls Baby Oil

75mls Baby Wash

You then put it all in one big bowl and combine together until smooth. See I told you it was really easy!  Using the baby soft wash worked just as well for me so if you can’t find baby-wash like in the original post then this appears to work just as well.

I then printed out the sugar scrub labels on photo paper, cut out and attached to the top of the jar and added ribbon to finish of.  I am really pleased with the end result, it smells lovely and left my hands really soft when I tried some of it. I would really recommend making some and for under £4 for a 380ml jar it is well worth the money.

    • It didn’t when I used it on my hands. There is only a very small amount of colouring it it, one drop from the bottle so would doubt there would be enough to dye your skin. Also you really wouldn’t be using that much or keeping it on your skin that long. lol
