I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting to share my newest sugar scrub recipe with you! Candy Cane Baby is my sixth sugar scrub recipe and the FOURTH sibling in the Sugar Baby family! First there was the original Sugar Baby recipe, then came Sleepy Baby, after that was Birthday Baby, and since the holidays are here I finally get to share Candy Cane Baby with you!
Sugar Scrub Recipe: Candy Cane Baby
The Sugar Baby line of sugar scrubs all contain one special ingredient: BABY OIL!
Baby oil is inexpensive, easy to find, and gentle. It makes a perfect ingredient for handmade sugar scrub gifts!
What makes Candy Cane Baby even more special is the ingredient that makes it smell like candy canes. See, I love easy and affordable supplies. That’s why I became giddy when I spotted the Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Liquid Soap at Target (yes, Target!). They even had small sizes in the travel section for less than $2. Score!
The fun thing about a sugar scrub recipe is that you can make it as smooth or as fluffy as you like. I enjoy a fluffier sugar scrub, so I use less of the liquid ingredients in the sugar. The Candy Cane Baby recipe has only 3 simple ingredients:
Plain white sugar
Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Peppermint Soap
To make the sugar scrub, see this post but replace the baby wash with the peppermint soap (its’ so easy!)
As you can see, I embellished Candy Cane Baby by tieing a mini candy cane on the front of the glass jar with red baker’s twine. The crushed candy cane on top is not to be used for exfoliating (although, wouldn’t it be fun to bathe in candy?). So, if you end up making this sugar scrub as a gift and embellish the top with crushed candy cane pieces like I did, be sure to tell your friends to remove the candy cane sprinkles before they use it:)
Do you know anybody that would love this handmade gift? They will be in peppermint shower heaven!
