I’m sorry but this scrub will last approximately 1 week if kept in the fridge. You have put fruit in this and that’s a recipe that without a preservative will grow all sorts of nasty bacteria. Do yourselves a favor and avoid making this.

Oooh…I just found the gift I’ll be making for friends this holiday season. Thanks so much for sharing this – sounds wonderful!

I love cranberry so this scrub is a must. Always looking for DIY beauty products.
Do you think that the cranberries are essential? Or just for color? Can’t find any cranberries in the off season.
Even over by raisins and stuff? I think you could do without or with something else

This is perfect to make for Valentine’s Day, would be nice to relax in the tub and try this out. Love that it is homemade and the cranberry sounds so great.

My apt. is very hot and dry and it leaves my skin dry and cracking. This recipe is perfect! I cant wait to use it and get some relief from this dead, dry skin. I especially love the color of the scrub! Thank you for sharing!

I still have a few folks to buy Christmas gifts for, but now I’m thinking I might MAKE those gifts. And I love anything with cranberry!

I am totally going to make this, looks like it would be wonderful for your skin!
I love making homemade body scrubs. Thanks for another great recipe to add to my stash.
That would make such a neat gift. I wish I had seen it before school ended as I could have given it to my son’s teacher.

I’ve mixed a lot of things with coconut oil, but not cranberry. I sure am missing out. Must make this soon!
I love the color! Looks like a great scrub!
