We are crazy for a lovely homemade body scrub. Especially when It uses only four simple ingredients and takes 5 minutes to whip up. This is a wonderful recipe to make up for your own use, or to make as a gift to someone. Imagine receiving a beautiful jar of homemade body scrub as a gift, it would be heavenly. And it would look super cute with a nice label and ribbon wrapped around the jar.
For this recipe you will need 4 simple ingredients, which you will most likely already have sitting in your pantry.
1/4 cup Coconut oil
3/4 cup Granulated white sugar
2-4 drops Food coloring
10-15 drops Essential oil
You can chose any essential oil, or combination of oils, which pleases you. We love lemon the best, it gives your body scrub a fresh and zingy lift. And you can chose a food coloring which will match the scent which you have chosen. For instance, I would pick a yellow food coloring for the lemon essential oil, red for a raspberry scent, or brown for a chocolate/cocoa scent.
You will also need:
A jar (for storing the body scrub)
Labels or ribbon (optional)
Step 1 Melt the coconut oil over the stove on a gentle heat. Take it off the heat as soon as it is melted, it won’t take long.
Step 2 Mix in the sugar. If the mixture has too much liquid, add a some more sugar a little bit at a time and mix through
Step 3 Add a couple of drops of food coloring, until you get your desired color
Step 4 Add the essential oil and mix well
Wasn’t that easy? If you are making this as a gift you can add a pretty ribbon to the jar, or tie on a cute label. Click on the link below to download Some printable labels for your luscious homemade body scrub.
