Orange Sugar Scrub

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we really love making DIY sugar scrubs and bath salts for DIY gift ideas and just for our own self-care time. We seriously loved making our mermaid foot scrub a couple of weeks ago and, oh, the lemon-love we have for our lemon sugar scrub cubes.

But I wanted something bright and orange. So, feeling a bit inspired to build on this citrus scrub idea, I made this amazing orange sugar scrub. It’s such a clean, fresh scent and I can’t say enough good things about it. Let’s get started.
