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.




1. Measure out and add all the ingredients into the mixing bowl.


2. Fully mix all ingredients together.


3. Place the mixed sugar scrub into a glass jar.



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).
