Hey Hey and Happy Monday to you all! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! We had a great time down in southern Indiana spending the day with my Mother-in-Laws. We went to church together, they shared stories of past Mother's Days with me, and then we enjoyed a delicious homemade brunch. Speaking of homemade...
I know that there are some gifts that money can buy. Cars, trips, and Spa days are all nice, but not in my wheel house. I personally like the homemade gifts. Those are the ones that take time and effort and some special thought, but not a lot of money.
Like I mentioned the other day, I have several "Mom's" in my life. So to help make them all happyI went over to my big sister's house the other day (I know her by Sarey, but most of you will know her as Thrifty Decor Chick. Check her out, she's awesome!) and made her up a jar. It smelled absolutely amazing! And it was so easy. Just add 2 parts sugar to one part coconut oil.
and my wallet this Mother's Day I decided to make some Homemade Coconut Sugar Scrub!
Stir it up. Add any essential oils you want. Put a lid and a cute ribbon around it, and you're done! Super easy and so much cheaper than going out and buying a gift. My sister loved it! Score! And, it's edible!
In a small jar, combine 2 parts sugar with 1 part oil. My measurements were 1/2 Cup sugar and 1/4 cup coconut oil. I used coconut here, but you can use olive oil or even canola oil. Or for a sweeter scent, you can use brown sugar instead. Seriously, so easy.
If you want to make a fragrance, add in your favorite essential oil. Some suggestions are lavendar, mint, lemon, raspberry, peach, whatever you like.
To go a further step, add in one to two drops of food coloring to make it your favorite color. That's it!
Did you have an amazing Mother's Day? I hope whatever you did, you got to see your loved ones and do whatever it is you wanted to do! Now I need to start thinking of what I want to make for Father's Day. Got any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by!
