    I love how my skin feels after a sugar scrub. I bet that orange-coconut sugar scrub smells heavenly.

    • Barefoot Budgeting

      I love all scrubs now, they are so much fun to make too and well, the smells!! The citrusy ones make you feel fresh and awake! Aroma therapy is an added benefit for sure!

    I’m definitely making that chocolate mint scrub! These all look great and I’ve never made my own scrubs before.

    • Barefoot Budgeting

      i’m pretty new at it too. it’s soooooooooooooo easy you’ll wonder why you never did before.

    I love body scrubs and how easy they are to make! Makes the skin super soft and helps exfoliate it well especially our knees and elbows.

    I am a crnaberry fiend so I really like the sound of the cranberry scrub. I have never tried making my own but I would love to x

    • Barefoot Budgeting

      I was intimidated at first until I got one as a gift and the girl told me just how easy it was to make. Now I’m a fan!! I just wish I’d planned further ahead to make more for holiday gifts!

  8. Stephanie

    I love making my own scrubs and giving them as gifts. Especially in the winter and when I use peppermint essential oil.

    • Barefoot Budgeting

      YUM! I’d love to be on your gift list 😉

    Sugar scrubs are so nice for holiday gifts. One of my nieces does a fabulous job of creating wonderful scents. My favorite is her lemon rosemary scrub.

    • Barefoot Budgeting

      i’m going to go on a ‘container’ hunt at local thrift stores and yard sales in hopes of some special containers for these as gifts this year. I love lemon anything!

  10. The Culinary Jumble

    What great ideas! I would never have thought of making a scrub out of chocolate and coconut – would be very hard to resist eating that instead!

    • Barefoot Budgeting

      right?! haha.. I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing!!!

  11. Shannon

    This is a great idea! It would make such a fun weekend activity with friends and would be AWESOME gifts! Definitely saving this for future use!

    I’ve never made a homemade scrub before. I would totally be done for the orange one! I love the smell of orange first thing in the morning, best way to wake up!

    • Barefoot Budgeting

      The Orange One is definitely on my list of ones to make first, I love citrus smells ‘and’ benefits 🙂
