I’m not all that crafty. I love small projects. I like simple and quick. I get too impatient for projects that are too involved. That’s why I was just thrilled when Domino® / C&H® Sugar contacted me about making something from the homemade gift section of their site.

I hadn’t given much thought to using sugar in a gift unless it was for baking something yummy! So, it seemed only natural to give their homemade gifts a try. Domino® / C&H® Sugar was kind enough to send me a $20 gift card to help with the cost, as well!- now who could turn that down?!

After checking out their gift ideas, I instantly knew I wanted to try their Sugar Scrubs!

These easy-to-make sugar scrubs can have all the glamor of a luxurious spa gift. Add a glittery ribbon, a scented candle and a soothing music CD as the perfect complements to your gift basket. It’s just the right way to relax after a long day of baking!

Sugar Scrub Recipes

Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub

(Adapted from White Cane Glimmer Sugar Scrub)

1 cup – C&H® Pure Cane Sugar
1 cup – light olive oil
4-5 drops vitamin E oil
5 or 6 drops – of cinnamon essential oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 16oz. – glass container with lid

Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Using a spatula, transfer mix into the container and secure lid. Contents will settle, mix before using. Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub on your hands and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. The scrub will tighten on your skin.

Sweet N’ Spicy Brown Sugar Scrub

1 cup – C&H® Dark or Light Brown Sugar
1 cup – C&H® Pure Cane Sugar
¾ cup – light olive oil
2 tsp. – cinnamon, powdered
2 tsp. – ginger, powdered
2 tsp. – nutmeg, powdered
1 16 oz. – glass container with lid
Cinnamon sticks, optional

In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients until thoroughly blended. Be sure to break up any lumps from the brown sugar or from the spices. Spoon into the glass container and secure with lid. Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub on your hands and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. The scrub will tighten

FYI:  I have no idea about shelf life, we used them up fairly quick.

Be sure to visit C&H Sweet Ideas Page for more edible and non edible ideas they even have these wonderful gift tags you can download for free and print!

Who couldn’t use a little pampering around the holidays? Let me tell you, Allison and I both tried this, she was pretty skeptical about it and has very dry hands……she LOVED it! It made our hands very soft and silky!! – now she wants a jar of it! LOL

Disclosure: C& H Sugar provided me with a $20 gift card to help me with expenses in this project.

If you’re looking for another gift idea, and this would even be great packaged with a sugar scrub………

the last few years I burned some CD‘s of our favorite Christmas songs, and Amy at Living Locurto designed this great cover that I used last year, and she has it on her blog to download and print for FREE!! Thanks Amy!!

Here’s how I packaged the CD’s for gift giving last year.
I didn’t have a clear cello bag large enough to fit the cd, so I just used the roll of Christmas cello I have. I placed some green crinkle paper on the cello tied it up around the cd with some pretty red and green ribbon and tied on a cute ornament!

    I love these scrubs, Cheryl! They make such fantastic gifts. Thank you so much for linking this up to Homemade Christmas!! :)

  22. 72

    What a nice homemade gift for the holidays – I’ve heard sugar scrubs work really well. I’ve only tried salt scrubs.

  23. 73

    i’m all about the homemade gifts – love all the ingredients in this sugar scrub!

    Not to be a scrooge, but burning songs onto CDs and redistributing them is unethical and against copyright law. It deprives the rightful owners and creators of their royalty income.

    So, I am going to make these for Christmas gifts. Perhaps different varieties, but my question is this….how far in advance can I make them? I made a peppermint foot scrub and an orange vanilla body scrub this summer, and they seemed to last awhile, but I was using them a few times a week, so they were getting stirred up a little quite often….not just sitting in a sealed glass jar. What are your thoughts? I was thinking I should whip them up right before giving, but making them ahead would be nice. Thoughts?

  26. 77

    I decided to make this for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I wanted to use it before I gave to her as a present. I love it!!!! Just made my 2nd batch for ME! I hope she loves it as much as I do!

  27. 78

    What is the shelf life on these scrubs and how much does each recipe yield? Thanks! Terra

  28. 80

    What is the consistency of the Brown Sugar one supposed to be? It seems the oil/sugar ratio is smaller giving it a thicker consistency than some other recipes I’ve seen. Just want to make sure that’s right.

  29. 81

    I’ve wanted to make some of these for a long time now! Where do you find your Vitamin E oil and the cinnamon essential oil?

  30. 82

    Thank You.
    I think I willk make this for my 2 daughters for easter..LOL

  31. 83

    These are really nice. I have 2 questions. Is the sugar you used just plain white sugar? Also, where did you get your jars?
