A couple of times a year, I make my own organic sugar scrub to use in the bath. The sugar is a good exfoliant and the coconut oil softens your skin. I like to use it, especially on my feet and arms. This year I decided to make some extra for friends as party favors.
Homemade Organic Sugar Scrub Recipe
- two 24 ounce bags of Organic Brown Sugar (I use Trader Joe’s)
- one jar 16-ounce Organic Coconut Oil (slightly melted in microwave (about 30 to 45 seconds with the top off)
- about 20 drops lavender essential oil like doTerra from Amazon if desired
Thoroughly mix in a food processor and pour into a large bowl to make it easier to scoop into individual party favor jars. I used 4-ounce mason jars from Amazon. The more firmly you pack it in, the more you sort of have to scrape it out when you use it (I’d rather have it that way to get more in the jar).
Makes about 10 to 12 jars.
I bought labels from Evermine.
I tied a little twine around the jars…and that’s it!
I’m in San Diego and it’s my sister’s birthday so we are taking her to lunch (with the Sugar Scrub Party Favors)! Happy birthday, Teresa!
Hope your week is off to a good start!
