Sugar Scrub

Hello all!

I am going to go a little Throwback Thursday on you today for my first non-card post! I made this sugar scrub for all the amazing mothers in my life for Mother’s day.

For the sugar scrub I combined regular white sugar and coconut oil in a 4:1 ratio. At first it did not seem like it was combining but I continued to mash it down with the back of a spoon and it combined nicely. I also added a bit of lemon zest, and a couple drops of lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, and sweet orange essential oils. It smelled amazing and makes my skin so soft. My mom even suggested that it smelled so good she wanted to eat it. 🙂

I found the Rajtan spice jars at Ikea and knew they would be perfect! I also used some of the paper I got at Paper Source, which I cut out with my heart punch and mod podged it onto the front of the jar.  I then added Pick Your Plum twine and a bobby pin with resin flower (also pyp).

I hope you enjoyed my post of today.  Do you give homemade gifts to people?  I think it more meaningful and personalized.
