I’m always on the hunt for DIY projects that can be completed in under 10 minutes and are also useful and immediately useable. I know it’s not often in life that we get to have instant satisfaction, but this easy DIY sugar scrub is not only something that smells incredible, it is something you can enjoy right away, or gift to someone—perhaps a certain Valentine? Nothing says I love you quite like the gift of luxuriously smooth skin. Ready to make your own?
First off, gather your ingredients. The beauty of this project is you can customize it completely! Here’s what I used:
-1 cup of brown sugar (you could sub for white sugar or salt)
-1/2 cup of coconut oil (olive oil would also work)
-3 drops essential oils
-10 rose petals
Fresh rose petals are hard to find, so I picked up roses from Central Market and pulled the petals off myself. Aren’t the colors gorgeous?
For Valentine’s Day, Ylang Ylang is a great oil to use. You can use whatever essential oil you want, or even skip altogether if you don’t have any on hand. 🙂
Scoop your ingredients in to a bowl, or a mortar and pestle and mix well.
To make it look extra pretty, top with a few rose petals.
So romantic, right?? 🙂
You ladies know how much I love gift packaging, so here’s how I put it together as an early Valentine’s Day gift for Scott. Anyone else have a husband who puts foot massages at the top of his gift wish list? 🙂
The glass jar is from Ikea and is topped with a red doily I picked up at the Dollar Spot from Target. Always find something I love there! 😀
That’s it! Cute and super luxurious! Silky skin FTW! 🙂
