I have been making homemade sugar scrubs for almost a year now—It’s my new favorite hobby! So, I thought I would share two different scrubs that are perfect for the summertime.

I packaged mine in a mason jar, but you can use any type of container with a tight seal. This body scrub is a great little treat to keep in the shower, a wonderful addition for at-home manicures/pedicures and it also makes a wonderful gift!
