  1. I LOVE this and will use it for my bridal shower hostesses! Do you have any ideas for cool groomsmen gifts that are also appropriate for a 14 year old groomsman?

  2. Thanks! How about hats or tees for the groom’s favorite team?

  3. They’ve got it all! We found cuff links made of game used baseballs on etsy! Might go with that. I’m about to whip up 15 4 oz jars of this sugar scrub! Can’t wait to see how well they love it!

  4. when you say vanilla, do you mean vanilla extract?

  5. Yes, I tend to use it’s alcohol form, but extract is perfect.

  6. how many jars did you fill?

  7. I believe 5, but it’s been a year since I’ve made them. Enjoy!

  8. Julie — been looking for teacher Christmas gift ideas…I might have found it! Except I need one “man” gift…any ideas?

  9. Hi there! Considering making this for a gift and wondering how exactly they should use the scrub. Is this meant to be used as a face scrub or body scrub? Thanks for the help!

  10. I just use it as a body scrub-you’ll love it and it’s so easy!

  11. So the sugar doesn’t disolve? Will it keep for quite a while?
    Great idea, loove vanilla

  12. It doesn’t – it’s not soluble in oil, making for a great scrub!

  13. Gifts brown sugar scrub is hown on the post here. Useful post

  15. Julie, how should this be stored? It won’t go rancid with the grape seed oil?

    • It just needs to be stored in an airtight container. It only lasts a few weeks because there are no preservatives, but I usually use mine rather quickly!

  16. What type of sugar would one use for the ingredient that says sugar (not the brown sugar)?
