I love making scrubs both for myself and for gifts. One of my favorites is a Lemon Lime Sugar Scrub from Stacy at A Delightful Home. So I was especially excited to hear that she was releasing an entire ebook on making scrubs!
Simple Scrubs to Make and Give is filled with over 30 different combinations for scrubs including:
- Morning Coffee Body Scrub
- Fresh Citrus Sugar Scrub
- Squeaky Clean Scrub
- Lavender-Peppermint Facial Smoother
It also includes an ingredients guide, essential oil guide, and packaging ideas.
I decided to have a last minute Girl’s Night last week and we made several of the scrub recipes in Simple Scrubs to Make and Give for some last minute Christmas gifts. One of my favorites was this Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub:
Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub
(recipe used with permission)
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
4 tablespoons grapeseed or sweet almond oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
10-15 drops lavender essential oil
Pour sugar into a clean mixing bowl.
Add oils and stir to combine.
Add vanilla and essential oil then stir to distribute throughout.
Pour into a clean jar and label.
*I also added in some dried lavender buds.
I have been using this almost every day since I made it last week and it’s wonderful. It’s relaxing and luxurious and would make a perfect gift, or a special treat for yourself!
