I love to give gifts from the heart. This Mother’s Day I wanted make something my mom would really appreciate. She loves to pamper herself and is a bit beauty obsessed, like myself. I decided to make a homemade sugar scrub that would allow her to have a spa day at home any day of the week. Every ingredient is all natural, and gently exfoliating your skin with this scrub will leave it nourished and glowing.

Use:

This scrub can be used for face and body (but avoid the eye area). Apply the scrub to your skin and massage in a gentle circular motion. Rinse off with warm water, then finish off with cool water. Pat dry with a towel.

    I recommend dry storing it for a couple of days, up to a week (the sugar will dissolve after that time period).

    Can you substitute the coconut oil for olive oil?
