Once you have made your sugar scrub you will need to package it into a container or into multiple containers for gift-giving or storage. I have read varying things about the length of time homemade sugar scrub is good for however, I made a batch several years ago and then, found it well over two years later and it was still in good condition. I’m sure that is not the recommended practice.
For this recipe, you will need 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup sweet almond oil, red cherry and almond fragrance oil, mica powder (does not stain your bathtub like dye can), a mixing bowl and a spoon. The recommended ingredients are linked to and listed below so you can make your cherry almond sugar scrub easily! The sugar you use can be something inexpensive from the supermarket or something more expensive and organic. You can even use something more coarse or fine depending on your personal sugar scrub preferences.

- ¼ cup sweet almond oil
- 6 drops Red Cherry fragrance oil
- 10 drops Almond fragrance oil
- ½ tsp Pin mica powder
- Mixing bowl
Directions for Cherry Almond Sugar Scrub Recipe:
First, combine all ingredients in a bowl. If you have doubled or tripled the recipe, you will need a bigger bowl. Stir gently but evenly until well combined. If you can see sugar and mica separately it needs to be mixed more. The Cherry Almond sugar scrub should look pretty much all the same color. Once it’s done being mixed, transfer it to airtight containers. Mason jars are great! You can get mason jars with a screw-on lid or mason jars with an attached lid that works like a hinge. The attached lid jars tend to be more expensive but…you won’t lose the lid!
Cherry Almond Sugar Scrub Steps:
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
- Stir well until fully combined.
- Store in an airtight container.
- Mason jars are my go-to!
