    I made some for Christmas with peppermint candy I crushed in my blender. It must have gone over well because my Mom asked me last weekend, “sooo…have you made any more of that stuff you gave me?”

      I found this recipe for Chocolate Body Scrub
      Ingredients:
      3 tablespoons cocoa powder
      1 cup brown sugar
      1 teaspoon vanilla oil or extract
      Olive oil as needed to make a paste – use a light variety. (I used Canola and it worked fine)
      Mix these together. Apply to moist skin, massage gently in a circular motion with fingertips, rinse with warm water.
      From http://www.bathandbodyrecipes.com
      I keep it in a container in the shower and I love it.

        This sounds luxurious, but I just can’t imagine using good cocoa for anything that doesn’t end up in my mouth. Yummy! :)

        I added 2 drops of essential peppermint oil to the chocolate body scrub recipe and it smells like a thin mint! Put it into jars with some ribbon and a cute tag…christmas gifts done!

          Oh wow, that sounds so good! I bet your giftees love it!

    Condo Blues – You’re a genius! Do you mind if I crib this idea at Christmastime? I think the ladies in my family would flip for some candy cane scrub! What sort of oil did you use? I love the coconut, but maybe something with less of a scent would be better for this?

    Candy cane scrub?! You’re not going to be the only one scooping up that idea! Definitely keep us posted as to what kind of oil would work best for this. Great ideas, keep ‘em coming.

    can you use oil that you would burn or no ?

    • http://glueandglitter.com Becky

      Do you mean for the essential oil? That should be fine, though I’d make sure your skin doesn’t react to the oil first….do a patch test before using the scrub all over, you know?

    Lovely product. And very simple to make too. I’ve seen some papercrafting materials at Christina’s Crafts. I think they will be useful for the wrapping. Thanks for sharing this.

    I do think polyunsaturated oils if ingested should be in very modest volume (like one teaspoon /day) and that taking virgin coconut oil is far better than significant amounts of polyunsaturated oil. Nevertheless I still favor using butter than virgin coconut oil because I still feel non-hydrogenated coconut oil is atherogenic. Look at these experiments: http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayAbstract?fromPage=online

    hi guys,

    I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!

    I am starting my homemade tea business and I can’t seem to come up with any good packaging idea. I don’t want to use fancy dandy packaging. I want something simple, homemade but beautiful. Any suggestions?

    • http://apron-apron. awonkeydonkey

      A simple sealed plastic bag placed inside a small cloth bag that is tied closed. You could do a very rough or even a frayed edge. Tied with a ribbon or raffia something simple. Then as you find different fabrics you like you can change it up to suit your needs. People that order multiple times can get a little surprise to see the different cloths you use. These can then be reused for sachet bags. If you want to recycle using vintage fabrics can be cheap and very fun.

    I think a mint and sugar scrub would be divine. I love making these myself for 1/10 of the price I could by it at any store, and what great gifts for the holidays.

    • http://glueandglitter.com Becky Striepe

      That sounds delightful! Do you use regular mint leaves or mint essential oil? Oooh…or both!

  • http://bismillahwithlove.com Nicole T.

    I think that all of your ideas are absolutely wonderful.Have any of you tried making a Kaluah Coconut scrub? Its actually really nice. Use coffee grounds, brown sugar, coconut oil a drop of vanilla extract and the excitement begins!!!!! Have a wonderful day!!!!!!

    • Becky Striepe

      Oh, my! That sounds good enough to eat, Nicole!

  • http://apron-apron.com A Wonkey Donkey

    Homemade products are fantastic, on my site we sell handmade baths bombs and soap slices.

  • Hope

    I decided to try and sell the sugar scrubs that I gave been gifting but I have no clue how to price them. I already sold 5- 16oz jars @ $10 and one 8oz for $5 and I know that’s cheap. Is there some type of guideline that I can follow? I’m thinking about selling lip scrubs $2.50 depending on the siZe & body scrubs between $5 & $30. Any suggestions & tips?

  • http://www.atomicbath.co.uk/bathbombsblog/ Bath Bombs

    They look fantastic. I’ve just started making bath bombs myself. I may have to give your idea a go. Thanks.
