Homemade Gifts: Orange Dream Sugar Scrub.

I can officially say that it’s the holiday season now!  I’m well into my Christmas shopping, how about you?  It really brings me joy to give to others.  I love putting thought into gifts and trying to figure out just what the person who I am giving the gift to would love.  One thing that I really like to do each year is make some homemade gifts, and the Healthy Living eBook bundle has given me all of the inspiration that I need!  The great news is that the eBook bundle sold so well that we are bringing it back for Cyber Monday and Tuesday too!

I used Simple Scrubs to Make and Give by Stacy Karen as a jumping off point for this homemade sugar scrub.  This is included in the Healthy Living Bundle that will be available again in one week.  Stacy has several wonderful recipes in her eBook.  This scrub was so incredibly simple to make, I don’t know why I haven’t done this before, honestly.  I used her Lavender-Vanilla scrub recipe and then substituted my own essential oil blend, using Sweet Orange Oil, vanilla extract, and a few drops of peppermint oil.  Oh my goodness, I wish this blog had smellavision because it smells dreamy!  I found these cute christmas light bling stickers at The Container Store and just drew the wire on with a sharpie (fancy, I know).  I added a ribbon around the top too… these will make the perfect homemade gifts for a friend or family member!

Stacy includes several other recipes in Simple Scrubs to Make and Give, like Morning Coffee Body Scrub, Fresh Citrus Body Scrub, and Chocolate Lovers Scrub.  They all sound good enough to eat, and they’re all natural!

But don’t buy Simple Scrubs quite yet!
Be sure to check out the Healthy Living eBook bundle next week, where you’ll find a total of 34 books by 29 authors (including Unbound Birth, by yours truly).  For $29 you’ll have your handmade Christmas gift resource guide in time to make homemade gifts for all of your loved ones!  It will be the last chance to get this bundle and it’s just too good to miss!

    • Hi Ashley, I’m afraid that I cannot share the recipe from her book here, but the book is well worth buying to get it and many more!
