Gingerbread Sugar Scrub Recipe
I was out and about yesterday and happened to be in the neighborhood of my local Dollar Tree store. I found a few goodies (stocking stuffers for the kids, a kitchen timer since I am always loosing mine that I keep for “10 second tidy” time with the kids. But the real treasure was that I found these great clamp lidded glass jars for only a dollar.
I immediately thought homemade Christmas gifts when I saw these great glass jars. A few kitchen staple ingredients and spices (my Dollar Tree had some cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg for only a dollar too) and I have the makings for a great inexpensive Gingerbread Sugar Scrub. I figured the cost for each gift was about $2 per jar for the ingredients and the jar.
These make perfect gifts for teachers, aunts, moms, grandmas, girlfriends, co-workers or just keep a jar or two on hand for yourself. I keep a jar near the kitchen sink for dirty hands!
