Holiday Teacher Gifts: Vanilla Chai Sugar Scrub

I have become slightly obsessed with sugar scrubs lately. I had no idea how simple they are to make and how FABULOUS they are for your skin. I LOVE all of the teachers the boys have this year. Every single one. While I still plan to add something of the gift card or wine variety, the boys I made a vanilla chai sugar scrub for each of their teachers:


So so so easy. Mix dry ingredients. Add vanilla, honey, and oil. Stir. Jar. Done.


Whisker Graphics bags + twine + simple tag = wrapped and ready to gift:


There are a multitude of recipes out there, I altered the one I found on Pinterest to be a little bit more aromatic:


1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar (or turbinado raw sugar)

1 cup + 1T oil (I used grapeseed oil)

6 to 10 chai tea bags, opened and added into dry ingredients

1 tsp honey

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

20-ish drops cinnamon essential oil

  6. […] Leuk om voor jezelf te maken, maar nog leuker om weg te geven als cadeautjes: zelfgemaakte scrubs! Deze Vanilla Chai Sugar scrub past perfect bij dit seizoen en maakt je huid niet alleen goed schoon, maar verzorgt hem ook met fijne, natuurlijke ingrediënten. Onderstaande hoeveelheid is genoeg voor 4 ruime blikken, houd er zelf 1 en geef er 3 weg als kerst cadeautje 🙂 Bekijk de ingrediënten en uitleg bij Mom.Run.Craft. […]
