Handmade Gifts: Lavender and Orange Body Scrub

I decided to have a go at making some Body Scrub. I found a few 'recipes' online to work out the ingredients and then just kind of made it up!

I bought 2 little pots from K Mart for $5 (if I end up making more I might try and find bigger pots as these only hold about 15ml I think).

I used equal parts sugar (just run of the mill white sugar) and sweet almond oil and mixed them together (about 4 teaspoons of each as I was only making a small amount).
And then I added lavender and orange essential oils until it smelt right. I ended up using 10 drops of lavender and 8 drops of orange. It may be a little too strong but smells great!

Then I used my circle punch to cut small circles out of sticky labels and drew/wrote on them and stuck them on the jars.

Easy As :-)

I had a little left over and tried it out - it left my skin feeling a little greasy for a while but once it soaked in made my skin feel lovely and soft. Definitely recommended!


  1. Hello Katie!
    Saw your comment on my blog..thought I'd pop over & say hi!
    Lavender & orange...mmmmm...I bet they smell gorgeous.
    Will show this to my teenage daughter, she is very keen on making her own beauty products.
