  1. I love simple, natural spa ideas! I cannot wait to try this! How did you make your cute label?

    1. Thanks Karen, I’m going to try and add that to the post, I’ll let you know when it is up.

  2. Does it need to be organic brown sugar? I made this tonight (a double batch) and ended up adding at least another cup and a half of brown sugar to make it more crumbly than soggy. I’m wondering if there’s a texture difference with the sugars.

    1. All the brands are a little different but I have found the organic does not seem as moist as the regular. (if that makes sense)

  3. Love this idea!! I made some and I am saving some in a 4 oz mason jar. I was wondering if you used something to seal the jar to help preserve the scrub? If so, what technique did you use? Also, what is the shelf life of the sugar scrub.
    My seven year old loved the smell of the scrub and he wanted to go buy doughnuts:)

    1. Hi Angie- Glad you liked it! I didn’t use anything other then the lid to keep it sealed, wondering if you could put a layer of saran wrap. I made a few batches and still have one from a year ago and it is still perfect 🙂
