Don’t stress over the prep time listed on this DIY Sugar Scrub Bars craft. The time does include the time that the bars are setting up, which is an hour or two. I always let mine sit about 2 hours just to make sure they are hardened. If you are looking for something small to get started in essential oils, then check out this kit. It includes their top six oils and if you like those, they have 99 to choose from.
