How to Make Gingerbread Sugar Scrub:

2. Gradually add coconut & almond oil until scrub reaches desired consistency (you may use more or less of stated amount).

3. Scoop Gingerbread Scrub into mason jar.

4. Print Sticker Labels for the front of the jar and add with a bow to gift (I used a full sheet of sticker paper and punched out the circles with a scalloped edge paper punch)
