Hello and Happy Holidays! I’m in full holiday mode and love the smell of this orange mulberry sugar scrub I want to share with you today. Last year at my work we had an orange mulberry air freshener. I fell in love. It smelled like Christmas in a fruity sense rather than a pine tree smell. It reminded me of the oranges I get in my stocking. So fresh and citrus, yet still Christmas. All year I’ve been thinking of this scent and how I could capture it in a way to share. It finally came to me in the form of a sugar scrub.
Sugar Scrubs are super easy to make and are so pampering. They make a perfect gift for friends, teachers and neighbors. You can create a sugar scrub using basic household items plus some essential oils (these can be ordered online).
What you will need for Orange Mulberry Sugar Scrub:
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1 cup of olive oil
- orange essential oil
- mulberry essential oil
- food coloring (optional, I tested mine with the food coloring and it didn’t stain the skin, but it would depend on what type you used)
To make the sugar scrub mix the sugar and olive oil until completely combined. It will be crumbly. Add in a couple of drops of the orange oil and mulberry oil. Do a little at a time and add more to create a more intense scent. A little goes a long way. Add a couple drops of food coloring. If you don’t add the food coloring it will retain the color of the olive oil. This is fine unless you want a different color. I added some red to mine and it turned out really pretty.
I absolutely adore these squatty mason jars. Adorable and the perfect size for Orange Mulberry Sugar Scrub. This recipe will fill about four of these jars. Tie with baker’s twine and gift away.
It might be helpful to include these instructions:
Wet hands and use a teaspoon of scrub to rub all over hands. Rinse under warm water. Pat dry. Follow with your favorite lotion.
