Ingredients

  • Basic Recipe

  • 1

    cup of oil (olive,coconut or almond)

  • 2

    cups of sugar

  • 1

    glass jar or mason jar that will hold approx 1 1/2 cups (or smaller jars or tins) Just be sure they have a nice seal and are clean.

  • optional additives

  • lemon zest

  • lime zest

  • orange zest

  • vanilla extract

  • cinnamon

  • nutmeg

  • cloves

  • ginger

  • allspice

Directions

Mix oil with sugar to blend. If you are adding scents,see list of additives, and follow suggestions or you can create your own personal blends. Lemon vanilla Add zest of one lemon to the sugar before adding oil. Squeeze a little lemon into the oil and add one tsp of vanilla. Blend all together. Pour into jar or jars. Gingerbread spice Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 ginger, allspice, cloves and nutmeg to sugar before adding oil. Alternately you can grate fresh ginger instead of ground ginger but you would need to add it to the oil. Blend all together. Key Lime Add zest of one lime to sugar before adding oil. Squeeze juice of 1 lime and 1 tsp of vanilla into oil. Blend together. I used 1 recipe for each ginger jar I used. Must only be used on the body, not the face.
