Now, here’s the easy part. Mix all of the ingredients together, stirring in the oil last. You can use 2/3 cup of oil, or you can decide to use more or less. It’s your personal preference how rich you’d like your scrub to be. I like mine rich and smooth with oil, like the scrubs at Bath & Body Works, a nice thick combination that leaves your hands super soft and smooth.
So now that you have this amazing fall body scrub, you’ll want to hand out a few as gifts (and just in time for Alicia’s housewarming!). Start by finding a nice jar container that has a solid seal. You can use a mason jar or a storage jar with a latch like the ones we found at Michaels. I’ve also seen these jars at Marshalls, Ikea and the Container Store. We designed these adorable Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub Printables for you in three different colors. Print out a few different sets, decorate with some festive straw raffia, and hand these out as gifts!
Furthermore, with the holiday season just around the corner, why not consider setting up an Etsy shop where you can sell beautifully gift wrapped versions of this scrub online? Creating an Etsy gift shop is a great way to start a business and make some extra money over the festive period. For more quirky online business ideas, take a look at this article. If you do decide to set up an online shop, make sure to promote it as much as possible to get people’s attention. Some business owners might even want to create social media accounts to try and raise awareness on different social media platforms, such as Instagram. For small businesses, it can be difficult to be taken seriously without a good number of followers. Perhaps those starting out should consider learning about How to Get 1K Followers on Instagram in 5 Minutes. That would make the business look more reliable, encouraging people to buy from the shop.
