Raspberry Sugar Scrub Recipe {homemade gift idea}

Raspberry 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, raspberry sugar scrub recipe (with FREE printable tag) that’s perfect for gift giving!

Raspberry Sugar Scrub

I’ve been making a lot of sugar scrubs in little batches, and this recipe filled up the small soap jar I purchased Michaels with some to spare.  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.

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

  • 1 cup white sugar

Decorate Jar

I used embellishments I had at home to decorate the jar.  Ribbons I had in my craft supply closet were used to tie on the “Raspberry 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.

    I love that you used blue colorant instead of red! Can’t wait to try it!!!

  2. This would make such a bright, colorful gift item. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Where do you purchase the aromatherapy oil? I’m having a hard time finding it.

  4. Is it really okay to use aromatherapy oils for the body scrubs instead of essential oils? I am new to these oils, but have only seen recipes using essential oils, not aromatherapy ones. Just wanted to check with you before I make this.
