Homemade Vanilla Sugar Scrub

I've always been interested in making my own products, I think it stems from making my own soaps as a kid. Also making potions by mixing all the products in the bathroom cabinets, anyone else did this?

I don't know where to start with making my own products though so thought a homemade body scrub would be the easiest. This particular scrub only consists of 3 ingredients and is so easy to make.
450g golden granulated sugar
200ml olive oil
1tbsp Nielson-Massey vanilla extract*
Mix it all up and pour into a cute jar and you've got an instant gift for some one. You can also switch up the scents by adding other extracts or essential oils. I'm thinking a bit of mint extract would work very well!

  3. Sounds lovely. I am a big fan of Vanilla I think it smells relaxing and fresh. It doesn't sound too complicated. I have always wanted to try and make my own. I get through so many scrubs I really should learn to make my own

  5. That scrub looks beautiful! Are these extracts available in the UK or did you have to mail order them from the US?
