Body Scrub & Wash Printable Labels

It's Time to Come Clean... here's my dirty clean little secret.... I've deviated from sewing and made Body Scrub and Body Wash. Get it? Come clean? Oh boy, I'm losing it.




It's a perfect time to whipped up these bad boys as Mother's Day gifts, teacher's gifts, or even bachelorette gifts. They aren't my recipes, the Body Scrub recipe is from PaulaDeen.com. And the Body Wash recipe is from LiveStrong.com. You can visit those sites for full instructions. But I thought I'd share with everyone the labels I designed, feel free to use. Plus bonus gift tags!

The labels fit on regular mouth half pint Ball jars. I laminated the labels since they will be in wet areas. When you cut them out from the lamination sheet, leave a 1/4" edge and it should stay waterproof as well as fit nicely between the lid and band.


A few tips when making the recipes... For the Body Scrub, one batch will fill one half pint jar perfectly. This is a SUPER easy recipe. For the Body Wash, I used Kirk's Castile soap, it took about 1 1/2 of the 4oz. bars. I also ended up using a lot more water because it was too thick. One batch filled 3 half pint jars. I suggest that you mix the essential oils and food coloring before you put them in the jars, it's much easier to stir in a larger container.

Happy mixing!!

  1. Thank you for the great gift idea! Your labels and tags are very cute. I'm thinking of making these for party favors for my daughter's wedding shower.

  2. Love the labels and the recipes! I did notice a small typo. It says "uinscented" on the Essential Oil Body Wash.

  3. Bethany, what program did you use? I make scrubs for myself, so don't usually worry about pretty labels, but this year I plan to make several as gifts for Christmas, and want something better than my handwritten scribble in permanent marker. :)

    1. I use Adobe Illustrator, but you can print the PDF as is from a number of free programs like Adobe reader or Preview (Mac).
