Ever wish you could bottle up the experience of a crisp autumn afternoon, strolling through an apple orchard? Put the warmth of your mama’s kitchen when she’s making apple cinnamon crumb cake in a jar? Hit replay on the burst of endorphins you feel when you’re walking down a leaf-scattered sidewalk mid-October and you hear the distant sounds of a high school marching band practicing for the football game?
As all the Oxford Pennant banners in my home confirm…YES YOU CAN.
Make some Sweater Weather sugar scrub to keep in your shower, set out for guests to indulge in when they use your restroom, or give some away for a “just because” gift. They’re super easy to make (only three ingredients!). I made a printable label you can use–I just printed mine on cardstock paper and used a piece of clear packaging tape to secure it (also protects it from water). There are two sizes of labels on one sheet, so you can use for various jar sizes.
I dug through my cabinets to find jars I already had–wide mouth pint jars (Target sells them cheaper than Amazon) and a beautiful wood lid jar from Michael’s.
Here’s what you’ll need:
SWEATER WEATHER SUGAR SCRUB
1 ¼ sugar
½ cup coconut oil
7-10 drops of Autumn fragrance oils (yummy fall scents like pumpkin and apple cider!!)
Labels Printable(printed on regular paper or cardstock)
You can alter your sugar/coconut oil ratio based on how oily you like your scrubs.
Make sure you clean the outside of the jar so there’s no oil residue before you attach your label, or it won’t stick.
I made my dad use it for his hands this morning, and he was all “Ooooh! So soft!” You can use pretty washi tape to secure a tiny spoon on the side if you’re giving it away as a gift.
Not exactly a bouquet of sharpened pencils, but still delightfully fallish.
