The first part of the green living gift kit for the bathroom would be the brown sugar scrub. This is a standard scrub that works great and smells great. You should put the directions on the gift tag or decorative label. The scrub should be put on damp skin before the bath since you will need to rinse it off.

Place in a mason jar for gift giving.
Creating Green Living Bath Bombs
A wonderful follow up to an all over brown sugar body scrub is a hot soak bath. The addition of bath bomb creates a bubble spa experience with a light scent and body rejuvenating experience.
