Tuesday Tried It - Scrubs

Today Michelle asked me if I had made the sugar-soap scrub on Pinterest yet.

Gardener's Hand Scrub

I had not, so I did.

Oil and Sugar Scrub on the right

I hadn't been out in the garden yet when I tried it, so I don't know how the Gardner's Scrub works on beet, tomato, or green stem stains; however it did scrub my hands, rough them up a bit, and dry them out.  

Next I made a batch of olive oil and sugar scrub (2 Tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil) to compare the two.  The olive oil and sugar scrub felt infinitely better.

Then I decided to combine the two.  There is a reason that recipe isn't going around Pinterest.

To sum up my observation:  Though it bottles nicely and looks cute with jute, I won't be giving any Gardner's Scrub for Christmas.

Thank you Jane for "testing" this scrub. I had pinned it in the hopes of making some for Christmas gifts - now I know that I can "scrub" this pin!!!

I made a sugar scrub with the activity day girls and it was quite nice. Pinterest of course. It was sugar,olive oil and a little essential oil (I found lavender and peppermint on clearance). It was more 'scrub like' and wasn't runny. it looks like a jar of sugar until you use it. We liked it. I'll bring you some. Just what you want, another scrub, ha.
