DIY Body Sugar Scrub

So this one is for the bigger ones, or even just mum! I made this with Jessica, she is really into her beauty products at the minute. I am a massive fan of body scrubs, I love how soft and clean they leave your skin. Jess and I both used this in the shower last night and it worked so well and smelt beautiful!

Making your own sugar scrub is so easy and can be made with a few simple ingredients you probably already have lying around the house...

Here's what you'll need:
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
Essential Oil of your choice
(Optional) Food Colouring

Add the sugar to a bowl and mix in the coconut oil, once combined, add about 10 drops of essential oil and mix again. We used lavender and tea tea oil. Lavender is my favourite scent in the entire world! If your mixture looks a bit too sloppy, add a little more sugar. 

The colouring step in totally optional, but Jessica wanted ours to be purple. So we added a drop of red and a drop of blue food colouring and mixed until combined. I didnt want to add too much food colouring and loved how it made this subtle lilac colour. All Done.
