Live with Purpose- April Sugar Scrubs

In preparation for Mother’s Day, join JVC to Live With Purpose by making sugar scrubs to treat and support women in our community. Sugar scrubs are used as a bath/shower item that helps nourishes the skin and help women in crisis care for themselves.

Who are we helping? Sugar scrubs are donated to local women’s organizations like CHANA and DRU/Mondawmin Healthy Families.

Jewish Values in Action:

  • Chesed- kindness
  • V’ahavta L’reacha Kamocha- loving your neighbor as yourself
  • K’vod He-ahnee- respecting the poor

Supplies: To make 10 jars of Sugar Scrubs:

  •       2 cups of White Sugar
  •       2 cups of Raw Cane Sugar
  •       1 cups of Oil
  •       2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  •        Bottle of essential oil


  1.        Mix white sugar, raw cane sugar, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl.
  2.        Add a few drops of an essential oil of your choice and mix.
  3.        Put the scrub into the small container.
  4.        Add a sticker to the top of the container.
