What a fun gift to make at home! I made these for my BFF Lindsey's bridal shower this past week (and rose ones for my bridal shower!) and they were a hit! So easy to make and such a cute addition to the place settings at the table or even in a to go goodie bag.
What is sugar scrub used for?
It's a great exfoliant.
It smells amazing and calming.
It can be made as a gift for a bridal shower, Christmas, birthday, baby shower, etc!
It was a great gift for everyone and something that can be made at home! Here are directions to make one 4 OZ jar. (I made about 40 jars but I didn't end up needing all the sugar and coconut oil I bought.)
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
1/3 cup sugar
Red and Blue food coloring
10-20 drops Lavender essential oil (depends how strong you want it)
Microwave the coconut oil until it's the consistency of a liquid. Make sure to let it cool off until you mix all the ingredients together. You can play around with the amount of coconut oil and sugar you use to get it to the consistency you like. Some people don't like scrubs to be too 'wet'
Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. The reason I microwaved the coconut oil is to make sure the food coloring attaches to the scrub. You want to put the drops in on the section of the oil because the coloring will attach best there.
Adding the food coloring is all about eyeing it in a way, if you need more red or blue coloring to make the shade of purple you want, add it. If you made it darker, then add more sugar. (don't worry I played around with it for a while to get it the color I wanted)
Spoon into your mason jars. :)
On your face – Use at the sink or in the shower. Massage in circular motions for 30 seconds. (Avoid hairline so it doesn’t get greasy.) Rinse and pat dry. The oil will absorb immediately.
On your hands – Massage into your hands and fingernails for 30 seconds. Rinse and pat dry.
On your legs and feet – Massage into your legs and feet while in the bath or sitting on the side of the bathtub. Rinse and pat dry.
