Cold Weather Hooking and Easy Sugar Scrub Recipe

Hello!!! These are my latest creations! All currently on ebay. 

Is everyone getting ready for Thanksgiving?? I always have it, so I had better get

Does anyone like sugar scrubs? I found several recipes, but didn't really want to hunt down and/or order all of the essential oils, etc.. some of the recipes have several ingredients. I thought there has to be an easier way to make these.  Some use olive oil, which is ok, but I am not a big fan of the fragrance, or lack of with some olive oil.

So I simply made some up with only 2 ingredients.  I used regular granulated sugar and mixed it with my favorite body oil. Vaseline has a nice gel oil, here is a photo, it has a really nice fragrance. Any body oil will work.  I just kinda found I liked mixing it with this gel. Since you use them in the shower, just grab an old small plastic container with a lid ( I wouldn't use it for food again.)  Fill your container about 3/4 of the way full of sugar and start adding your oil until it just makes your sugar look clear and it is no longer granulated. Rub into your skin in the shower and rinse well! Your skin will feel wonderful and soft! I have purchased sugar scrubs for much more than it cost to make my own, and really could not a tell a difference. You can always mix these is glass jars, decorate them and give them as gifts. FUN!!!!

I love your creations. I have a suggestion, since the Smurf movie is still out why not make a complete set of Smurf. It can be a hit.
