One of my favorite gifts to give friends and family is a DIY sugar scrub. Not only is this a great homemade gift but it will do wonders for your skin, no matter the season. I switch up the scents depending on the time of the year. I love peppermint in the winter but my all-time favorite is my summery pineapple sugar scrub. The amazing scent will instantly turn your shower into a tropical getaway!
I recently whipped up a new batch for myself and knew it was perfect to share to help kick-off Pineapple Week over at The Weathered Fox.
Be sure to pop over throughout the week to check out pineapple themed home decor, recipes, drinks, DIY tutorials, shopping guides, and free printables!
Once you have all the ingredients on hand, all you have to do is mixed them together. So this sugar scrub literally takes 5 minutes to make!
I always use essential oils for my sugar scrubs, but you could also squeeze fresh pineapple juice into this one and keep it refrigerated. It would make for a wonderful post-beach exfoliator!
I made a few extra jars full of this scrub and attached some cute labels. They are great to have on hand for hostess gifts!
