Coconut oil sugar scrub: My absolute favorite gift to make for friends, family, neighbors, and teachers is this DIY sugar scrub. This year, I started using coconut oil instead of olive oil and I love it even more!
Make this for any of the ladies in your life. It's great for dry heels, softening your legs before shaving and just about any relaxation home spa gift basket you'd want to give.
This year this gift is especially useful since I figured out sugar is a migraine trigger for me. So now I'm using up all of my sugar making pretty, pretty gifts for friends, family and myself!
Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub
1 pint jar (I like to use the squattier gift jars, but a regular wide-mouth is fine, too)
Mix all ingredients in your jar (I don't even measure, I just eyeball it in my jar and mix away!). You can also mix it in your stand mixer. Add the essential oil until it smells wonderful to you!
Place a pretty piece of cloth on top of your canning lid, then screw the canning ring on over it for a pretty decorated piece.
I usually print out instructions for how to use it (and how to make your own refills!) and label the jar. My daughter likes to add a little butterfly drawing on the lid, too. So cute.
Do you make your own body lotions or beauty products?
If not, give it a try! Coconut oil sugar scrub is so easy and so much healthier for your skin!
