DIY Sugar and Salt Scrubs {frugal spa gifts}

This past Christmas, I decided to make the majority of the gifts we gave. Many of the gifts can double as birthday presents, mother's day or father's day presents as well - check them out if you're looking for some fun and budget friendly projects.

Back in December, body scrub recipes were plastered all over my Pinterest page, but didn't want to buy expensive essential oils. Two scrubs stood out to me:  this recipe using peppermint extract from Life in the Motherhood, and these basic instructions from Martha Stewart.
I played around a bit, and modified the recipes.
