DIY sugar scrub done

2. Manly Sugar Scrub

Who says that treating yourself is just for the ladies? Use this easy tutorial to create a homemade sugar scrub, and just mix up the scents to be a little more manly. Some scents your man might like:

  • tea tree
  • sandalwood
  • patchouli (Use sparingly mixed with another oil, unless you want him to smell like the shakedown at a Phish show!)
  • rosemary
  • lemongrass
  • Texas cedarwood

Package it up in a cute Mason jar, and you’re good to go!
