Is there anything that reminds you of Autumn more than the amazing smell of crisp, ripe apples? Well, okay, Pumpkin Spice is a big contender for a lot of you but for me? I absolutely adore anything apple scented! I originally made this Apple Sugar Scrub for selfish reasons (don’t mess with me and my scrubs!) but soon realized that it would make the perfect little gift for a new teacher, co-worker, or friend. It comes together within minutes and when paired with some cute packaging, makes a perfectly sweet Autumn gift!

Apple Sugar Scrub Gift
- 1/4 cup JOHNSON’S® baby moisture wash with honey apple
- 1/4 cup Almond Oil
- 3 cups Sugar
- Half Pint Wide Mouth Mason Jar
- Styrofoam Apple
- Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
- Burlap Ribbon (love how easy this one from Consumer Crafts is to use!)
Step One. Mix the baby wash, oil, and sugar in a separate bowl. Pour into mason jar until filed, saving any extra scrub in another container for yourself!
Step Two. Make the decorative packaging but cutting the styrofoam apple in half and gluing to the top of the lid. I made the mistake of using a silicon glue that actually melted the styrofoam a bit before adhering. It eventually worked out but it would have been easier if I had just started with a styrofoam safe glue like Aleene’s.
Step Three. Use glue or strong double-sided tape to attach burlap ribbon around rim. Make a small bow with some excess ribbon and attach to the front of the jar. Add a small tag and you’re ready to go!
I absolutely love the amazing smell of of this scrub! The rich and creamy lather nourishes as it cleans and because it’s Dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic, I know it’s gentle enough for everyday use. We love it so much everyone in the family uses it!
This gift is so easy and inexpensive to make I think I’m going to make it for all of my sons’ teachers. You know, as a little way to thank them for being so dedicated and sweet. Hope you all enjoy this Apple Sugar Scrub Gift tutorial either for yourself or for someone special!
