Coconut oil was pretty much my saving grace last winter. I apply it in the shower when I’m done washing myself, but before I turn the water off. I usually get such dry and flaky skin, but this simple step in the shower left me with soft skin all winter long! My sugar scrub takes the coconut oil one step further by adding a little exfoliation into the process. And then, with a hint of lavender, you have the perfect lavender sugar scrub!
Our family is all about homemade, thoughtful gifts, and Mother’s day is no different. This simple sugar scrub will make the perfect gift for your mother. And make it with your daughters to add a little more intent and love into the gift.
Lavender sugar scrub
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup sugar
Few drops lavender essential oil (I did 3 or 4 drops for a half recipe, it’s personal preference.)
1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend.
2. Put in a cute jar and decorate!
It’s a super easy, and thoughtful gift idea! Pair it with a natural soap and a fun nail polish for a whole spa themed Mother’s Day gift. But for me, I’ll be keeping it in my shower!
