  1. I haven’t made sugar scrub in about a year & after seeing this it’s the perfect time! Come link up & share your recipe @ Lovely & love lavender!

  2. Jennifer Dysart says:

    Love it, I’ve never made my own scrub, but it looks easy and great for gifts as well. I love lavender

  3. Love this!!! Definitely going to make it. I love the smell of baby bath time wash. I’ve used that on all of my kiddos when they were small. I could smell them all night after they’ve had a bath in it. Lol.

    • Oh the memories that the smell of baby wash brings back! I’m right there with you! Thank you for taking the time to stop and leave such a kind comment:)

  4. I always figured the body scrubs were fairly easy to make, but I didn’t know how. Thanks for the info! 🙂

  5. I am going to make this for a family member. I would have never thought about adding food coloring. That was a great tip. Oh, btw I know this has to feel great with the added baby oil. I love using baby oil after a shower.

  6. That is a great idea!I love Lavender.

  7. What a great gift idea!! Love the purple color and lavender!! Pinning!!

  8. What a great idea, pinned!

  9. Very inspirational! I’ll have to make some chages though: a few drops of organic lavender essential oil and castile soap instead of the baby wash and olive oil instead of the baby oil. Other than that – what a great way to end the day!

  10. I’ll never buy sugar scrub again – this is really cheap and easy to make!

  11. Love this. I never knew it was this easy to make sugar scrub. I love your elegant packaging.

  12. Love this idea! I just might have to make up a couple of these for Mother’s Day (plus one for myself, of course!) 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  13. I borrowed your sugar scrub recipes for a church women’s retreat and they were a hit!! Can’t wait to try this one for my daughters-in-law. Thanks for making me look so talented!!

      What a huge compliment Randi!! Thank you for taking the time to come back and leave such kind words:) I am so grateful!!
      I have 2 “new” scrubs on my To-Do list in the upcoming months. Stay posted!

  14. Siunds lovely! How long will this sugar scrub mixture last?

  15. does the food coloring get on your skin/dye your skin when you use the scrub? i am making this for gifts and don’t want that to happen!!!

    • That is a great question Kacie! Since it is such a small amount of food coloring (and you can use even less if you want to) it will not stain your skin! XO and have so much fun making the gifts!

  16. You gave me such wonderful gift ideas fory friends this christmas! I specially love how cute the packaging is 🙂 more please! xx

    • Can I just say THANK YOU for your extremely kind comment? You have made my day! I am so happy that YOU now have easy and beautiful gift ideas for your friends:) I have a new scrub coming out this week. I hope you come back to see it! XO, Kelly

  17. This might be silly, but does the food coloring stain or dye the body part you use it on? I’ve never made scrubs before. I want to do this sleepy baby one with almond oil instead of baby oil.

    • That’s not a silly question at all Tiffany! I have not had a problem with the food coloring staining the tub or my skin and I’ve heard the same thing from others who have made it. As you know, a tiny bit of food coloring goes a long way, so to be safe, just use a little bit. I’d love to see your finished product so send me a picture if you can! I have a NEW scrub that I’m posting today that doesn’t have any food coloring:) It smells just like Christmas! Thanks for stopping by and being so kind. Happy Holidays!

  18. Hi. would it make a difference if I have the purple bedtime bath instead of the bubble bath @


    • Hi Leslie!

      That purple bedtime bath is actually the stuff I used too! It will make it a little bit purple, but I enhanced it with just a little food coloring (totally optional, of course!). You can’t go wrong with these ingredients:) Have fun!

  19. Where do you get the jars from? I’m planning on making all your scrubs and giving them as gifts, but I really need something to put them in!

  20. I can’t wait to try this , but is safe to use on toodlers and babies? Also how much does the ingredients you have listed make? Thank you!

    • Oh no Samantha! This is actually not for babies at all:) It’s made with baby soft ingredients to help you relax. This recipe will make enough for 1-2 people with medium sized jars. Let me know if you have any questions!! Thanks for stopping by and THANK YOU for your kind words. XO

  21. I made this same scrub last week and love it. The only problem is I noticed yesterday that most of the food coloring seems to have pooled at the bottom of the jar now. Have you had this issue?

    • Oh no! Try making the scrub “fluffier” by adding more sugar to it. That way, the liquid won’t collect at the bottom. Let me know! XO

  22. Christine says:

    I found this on Pinterest and am SOOOO excited to try it out! The sugar you use… Is it just regular sugar like what you’d use in cookies or kool-aid? Or a different kind?

    • I hope you love it as much as I do! Yes, I use plain old regular white sugar. But, feel free to experiment if you want to:) It’s a no-fail kind of scrub (and it’s pretty too!) XO

      • You weren’t kidding! This is so simple I kept thinking I missed something! I had the same issue as Brandy so my next batch I’m goin to up the sugar. Thank you so much for sharing! This is such a money and time saver gift that I feel like I’m cheating! LOL

  23. How much does this recipe make? I’m making some as favors for a baby shower, and don’t know how much to purchase / how much of each ingredient to get!

  24. can you use salt in place of sugar?
