Oranges & Apple Sugar Scrub Recipe {homemade gift idea}

Oranges and Apple sugar scrubs are easy to make, package adorably and are good for your skin!  Homemade scrubs are one of the best gifts ever!  They are my new latest craze {as you know} and after the recent success of my Lemon Sugar Scrub for Mother’s Day gifts, my Coffee Sugar Scrub for Teacher Appreciation, and my cherry, peach, and strawberry sugar scrubs just because, I decided to go all out and try a few more fruity sugar scrubs!  So, here’s an easy-peasy, oranges & apples sugar scrub recipe (with FREE printable tag) that’s perfect for gift giving!

I’ve been making a lot of sugar scrubs in little batches, and this recipe filled up the small Mason jar I purchased in a 4 pack at Target.  I’ve had so much fun finding interesting containers to put sugar scrubs in!  The recipe is super simple.  I love that sugar scrubs can be used on the hands, feet and body.  I like to use sugar scrubs in the shower because they are such great exfoliators and the hot water dissolves the sugar crystals before they can be too abrasive.

Oranges & Apple Sugar Scrub Recipe

Mix Together {this recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups prepared}

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, plus 1 TBS
  • 2-3 drops of oranges & apple aromatherapy oil
  • approximately 10 drops of peach soap colorant (I purchased a pack of 4 colors at Michaels for $4.00)

Apples and Oranges Sugar Scrub

Decorate Jar

I used embellishments I had at home to decorate the jar.  Ribbons and twine I had in my craft supply closet were used to tie on the “Oranges & Apple Sugar Scrub” tag.  The tag was designed by Tricia Rennea exclusively for Seven Clown Circus, and can be downloaded for free!  The sugar scrub was super easy to make and the whole project took me a total of 20 minutes including tying on the printable!  It’s THAT easy.
