So, I’m not much of a bath and body product type of girl. I’m not really much of a makeup girl either. I’d like to be a little more of both, but have really NO IDEA whatsoever about makeup (beyond foundation and mascara) and my hair is just such a hot mess most of the time I doubt any product could really tame it.
I’m also not much of a crafter or DIY’er. Again, I’d like to be and my Pinterest boards are full of cute handmade treasures dying for a place in my home. I know my problem on this one though: too many steps and too much clean-up is too boring for me. I like a quick and easy craft that allows me the satisfaction of enjoying the finished product instantly. Cooking does that, which is why I like it. And, aren’t we supposed to be the generation of instant gratification? I guess they have me nailed.
This Sugar Scrub is perfection. Shopping for the ingredients was done at Whole Foods, one of my most favorite places on the planet. Hello, free samples! And, the scrub was super quick and super easy to make. Now, I’ll admit that I’ve never used a sugar scrub (or any scrub) before, so I can’t guarantee that it was this particular scrub that did it, but I am a complete convert.
At the risk of giving too much information, let’s just say, I used it EVERYWHERE. And it was AMAZING. Make this, seriously, make it.
(makes about 2 cups)
1 1/2 cups cane sugar
1/2 cup kosher or sea salt
1 cup coconut oil (from the grocery section)
10-20 drops essential oil (I used 13 lime and 7 peppermint)
Mix together sugar, salt, and coconut oil until smooth. Add in essential oil and stir to combine. Sniff along the way and add more or less oil as you desire!
