Thinking about doing some DIY gifts this holiday season?
Great as a gift or as a sweet treat for your skin, this sugar scrub is moisturizing and exfoliating. It can be used on your face, neck, stomach or wherever you want your skin to be left soft and soothed. Apply to moistened skin and massage in with fingertips, rinse and enjoy your rejuvenated skin!
What you’ll need:
Place coconut oil in a small pot and heat on low until melted. Allow to cool slightly. Start by adding 1½ cups sugar to the oil, salt, along with the peppermint and lavender oils. Mix until ingredients are well combined. If mixture is too wet, add another ½ cup sugar until scrub is to desired consistency. Spoon scrub into air-tight containers (such as a mason jar) and decorate if desired.
Yields approx. 24 ounces or 3 half-pint (8 ounce) jars – one for you and all of your friends!!
