Valentine's Day is just around the corner! What could be sweeter than making something for those you love to let them know you're thinking of them? Chocolates are a sweet gift, but what about something that pampers a little more? What about if you just want to pamper yourself? The perfect gift for your Valentine, Galentine, or yourself: DIY Sugar Scrub!

DIRECTIONS

  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar and oil. Add in the essential oils one or two drops at a time for the level of scent you desire. 
  • Put in an air tight jar and wrap with a utensil to scoop the scrub and you're done!

Personalize your gift with a pretty tag, ribbon, and instructions for use. Use about 1 tablespoon in the shower to exfoliate by gently rubbing in and rinsing away excess. Dry by patting with a towel rather than rubbing. Use caution in the shower as the coconut oil will be slippery!

We hope you'll love making this sweet pampering treat for your loved ones and for yourself this Valentine's Day!
