how to make DIY sugar scrub

I love sugar scrubs. They are great for dry skin and these cute little DIY's make adorable mother's day gifts.

The "recipe" is so easy, a kindergartener can make it. In fact, it would be a fun project to do in quarantine with the kiddos. 

This recipe calls for 3 things. 2 of which you probably already have. Coconut oil, granulated sugar, and essential oils. If you don't have essential oils, you can find them here. I like to use the coconut oil from Trader Joes, but Amazon also carries it. 

And then if you want to reuse containers you already have, you can. However, I like to use these and I love using my old school cheap-o label maker too. I use the 9 oz. size which makes a really good amount to gift. 

These look so cute in the shower, I am already looking forward to making peppermint ones for holiday gifts. I can picture them now with cute little holiday tags and ribbon. 

Each batch makes 4 jars full. 

You can make up several batches all with different scents.

I chose citrus fresh because I had an abundance of this oil and it smells perfect for Spring.

Make sure you pack as much into a jar as you can. Then simply twist on the lid and add a label.

Get creative with this part! 

Think about custom sayings like, "to Mom with love" or "citrus fresh sugar scrub" etc. etc. you get the idea. I know you all are creative so I can't wait to see what you come up with! If you make this and post to Instagram, be sure to tag me, mysweetsavannah so I can see.

And don't forget to pin this image to your DIY pin board!
