Give your teacher the gift of smooth skin with this fabulous Homemade Apple Sugar Scrub. A fun back-to-school teacher gift idea for all the hardworking teachers! It’s also the perfect fall sugar scrub.
I love sugar scrubs and I LOVE creating teacher gifts for all the fabulous teachers out there so today’s easy craft project extra is extra fun! Oh, and it also includes mason jars – it doesn’t get better than that.
But, this isn’t just any sugar scrub. It’s an Apple Sugar Scrub. A sugar scrub with apple scented oil and colored with red food coloring. Don’t worry. The red coloring won’t turn your skin red. I can tell you that this is the perfect teacher gift and a fun fall sugar scrub to have in your bathroom. I highly recommend making a double or triple batch because it’s a great gift and you need to keep a jar for yourself.
Homemade Apple Sugar Scrub
- 2 cups of sugar
- 4-6 tablespoons oil (melted coconut oil, almond oil, or olive oil)
- 10-15 drops apple fragrance oil
- red food coloring (optional)
Add sugar to medium bowl. Slowly add in oil 1 tablespoon at a time and stir with a spoon. You don’t want the sugar mixture to be too wet. If you accidentally add too much oil, just add a little extra sugar.
Next, add a few drops of red food coloring to the sugar mixture and ix until color is consistent. I only recommend adding 2-3 drops of food coloring. A little goes a long way. This step is optional but I think it makes it a little more festive especially for a teacher’s gift.
Then, add in the essential oil and mix well.
Once your sugar scrub is prepared, scoop into small mason jars. Screw on the lid and add a pretty bow for a fun back-to-school teacher gift.
How to use a sugar scrub:
- Use on hands and body up to three times a week.
- Gently massage in a circular motion and rinse off with lukewarm water.
- Homemade sugar scrubs are great for people with sensitive skin like me because it’s pretty much just sugar and coconut oil.
- Sugar scrubs will last up to three weeks in an airtight container.
