I hope you enjoyed some festive New Years celebrations. We had a low key night at my sister's house and everyone was in bed before the ball dropped, #lifewithatoddler. Anyway, it has been freezing the past few days and I have been wanting to try to make a sugar scrub to help with dry hands and skin from the cold. This. Is. Amazing. It smells so good and it is so easy to make! Here is how I made my own sugar scrub.
1/4-1/3 cup of coconut oil
1 cup of white sugar
A few drops of almond extract (or almond essential oil)
Melt the coconut oil and stir in the almond oil and sugar. Mix until ingredients are incorporated and store in an airtight container. For use as both a hand scrub or body scrub. Enjoy!
I can't wait to try to make a different scent next. I'm thinking coconut vanilla or lemon sugar sound good. I used a small amount after washing my hands and it really made them so smooth! I'm a hand cream fanatic and I haven't reached for it once since I've been using the scrub. This would be the perfect little gift for friends or as a hostess gift too! Let me know if you try it, I'd love to hear.
