The young owner of local business Sweet Scrub has created special holiday scents for the Christmas season.

Thirteen-year-old Payton Cory started making and selling hand scrub back in June, after she made a batch for her mother for Mother’s Day. With the help of her grandparents Payton developed even more scents, created a logo and found professional packaging for her products. Back in September she had sold over 200 jars of Sweet Scrub through family and friends, and developed five distinct scents: strawberry, pineapple, coffee vanilla, pumpkin spice and apple cinnamon. The scrubs are made of all-natural ingredients, with a base of coconut oil and sugar and are a great way to soothe dry hands from extra washing and sanitizing.

For Christmas, Payton has created three special scents, candy cane, gingerbread and cranberry. She says she picked these scents because they all remind her of Christmas with cranberry sauce always on the holiday table and the tradition of giving candy canes as little gifts. “I always bake gingerbread with my grandmother,” she adds.

Payton is offering gift packs for the holidays which include two 4oz jars for $10 or three 4oz jars for $15. Shoppers can pick their favourite scents and Payton will gift wrap them for free. While she is featuring her holidays scents, all the rest (except for pumpkin spice) are also available in 8oz jars for $7 or 4oz jars for $5. Payton is willing to organize either pick up or delivery for those in the North Grenville area. Get your orders into [email protected] as soon as possible to ensure that your order is ready to be put under the Christmas tree.



  1. Love your products, Payton. Your Aunt Bonnie in Picton, gave me one last Christmas. It was used up and she was able to get a second, smaller one which I am now using. As a retired teacher, I applaud your ingenuity, determination and work. 👏 If any member of your family are coming to Picton, please send along more! By the way, the smaller size fits well on my shower shelf.
