I am thinking ahead to all of our Spring entertaining needs and created this super easy homemade Carrot Sugar Scrub and Free Printable Tag! This pretty sugar scrub is a perfect DIY gift, bridal or baby shower favor, ladies spring luncheon and, of course, Easter! Slip them into Easter baskets, hand them out to the grandkids or place them on the Easter table for family and friends to take home. I also created a FREE Sugar Scrub Tag to attach to the bag!

Carrot Sugar Scrub and Free Printable Tag!
This recipe makes two carrot sugar scrubs.
First, I diluted my food coloring, in less of a 1/4″ of water. Mine was gel based food coloring and I thought it would mix better in a more liquid form. Be careful not to use too much water.
In a bowl, mix the 1/4 cup of olive oil and the 1 cup of sugar together then add the food coloring a little at a time until you are happy with the color. Add several drops of the essential oil and mix again. I used eight drops of essential oil, but more or less drops to scent the sugar scrub to your liking. You can add more oil if you like your sugar scrub less textured. Keep in mind some citrus scents may break down the plastic bags.
Cut several strands of the raffia to use for the stem. I used the natural bends in the raffia to determine the length. Scoop in have of the sugar scrub into the bag then insert the raffia into the center of the scrub. Bunch together and tie with a pretty ribbon. Super cute!
Don’t forget to add the Free Sugar Scrub Printable Tag – print below.
I hope your Carrot Sugar Scrubs are a HUGE success!
