To keep the momentum going, Dixie Crystals decided to give-away 3 tickets to next year Bloggers University 2017 and to enter you had to create your own sugar scrub. So.. I decided to give it a try. I love gardenia and wanted to use that in my creation.
It was so simple – and here are the ingredients:
- 1 cup of Dixie Crystals sugar
- 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
- 6 drops of White Gardenia essential oil
- zest of 1 lime grated
Mix all the ingredients and find yourself a nice bowl to keep in the bathroom ready to use
I used an antique silver miniature coal scuttle sugar bucket. These are normally used for sugar cubes but I think it’s perfect for the scrub
The buckets usually come with a scoop but unfortunately mine didnt’, which is why I got it for $3.00. I lucked up and had a baby spoon and it makes a good scooper.
This scrub has the right blend of floral/citrusy smell and after you use it… the gardenia scent lingers on your fingers without being overpowering.
It’s a great alternative to liquid soap and leaves your hands feeling soft and smooth
So, go ahead, give it a try…you’ll have skin so-soft.
Scuttle buckets are found at several estate sales and yard sales, but you can also find them here.
Until next time, happy hunting and enjoy thrifting your house into a home!
