    Question Sugar scrub question

    How long do homemade sugar scrubs last once made?

    I was thinking about sending my MIL a Mocha Spice Sugar Scrub

    Mocha Spice Sugar Scrub - Recipe for Mocha Spice Sugar Body Scrub

    If I mixed it all up now it would be a month before she even opened it. Is that okay or should I make a sugar scrub kit the dry ingredients in the jar and a bottle of the oil then she could mix them together when she was ready to use maybe include a plastic spoon so she could have it all in one place when she decided to use it.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    My question is how long do scrubs last and should I mix it all together or send it to her separate.

    Does the page answer that question? if so please point me to the section I didn't see it.

    As long as the container is airtight, it should be okay. If it's exposed to moisture, then it could become rancid. Hope this helps.

    Sorry Imagine, I copied the wrong site.

    This is what I meant to:

    I made a scrub using just sugar and oil. Kept it in a small mason jar to use as a foot scrub. Kept it for a couple months that way.

    I think I will send it to her dry and liquids not mixed. I found a small bottle of oil. That way she can mix it up when she wants.

    We also made some bath salts and bought her a nice washcloth.
