You can pretty much find homemade sugar and salt scrubs all over Pinterest and every DIY site. I decided if I’m going to make a homemade scrub and not just buy one from Bath & Body Works then it has to be my ultimate favorite. This recipe combines my favorite scents in life: Lavender & Coconut! Oh my! Lavender can put even the most tightly wound in a little bit more ease. Coconut is one of those scents that brings a smile to me asap. Coconut reminds me of the beach, summertime, no shoes, no shirt, no problem :)

Recipe:

1 cup sugar

5 tbsp of coconut oil (melt in microwave safe dish for 40 seconds or so)

8 drops of lavender oil

That’s simple enough right. Stir like crazy in a mixing bowl and then dish into sealable containers.

I actually save my containers from all sorts of things to recycle and use as scrub containers. You can gift this sugar scrub at the Christmas season when most everyone can use a little more Calm in their life.

For the tag simple use cardboard cutouts and you can stencil or handwrite a beautiful title, ingredients, directions or love note.

I’m hosting a Christmas Craft Party and this scrub is making the list of one of our projects to make. I know as busy women rushing to and fro in the normal day to day we can all think of someone who could benefit from this Calming Scrub.

Take a moment to slow down today. Take a minute to consider these words:

Every day is a bank account
And time is our currency
So nobody’s rich, nobody’s poor
We get 24 hours each
So how are you gonna spend
Will you invest, or squander
Try to get ahead
Or help someone who’s under

Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
Life means so much
Life means so much

(Lyrics from Chris Rice Life Means So Much)

Who can you invest a little love in with this simple Calming Sugar Scrub? What tips or suggestions do you have for slowing down during the hustle and bustle of the Season?
