Here is a DIY a la’ natural body scrub that you can literally eat, just in time for Mother’s Day.
Handmade gifts not only demonstrate thoughtfulness, they demonstrate the motivation you have to make things with your hands despite the daily grind.
Yes, buying a gift is more convenient but being able to create something with your own hands is empowering.
This Organic Summer Coconut Scrub takes four ingredients and 10 minutes to make.
Here what you will need:
Virgin Coconut Oil (Dr. Bronner’s)
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
Start with adding the salt and sugar. Stir in the coconut oil (a little goes a long way). Add the sweet orange oil until you get the desired fragrance.
It is hard to measure when making scrubs because everyone has a different preference on the consistency.
Add more sugar or salt depending on if you prefer a salt scrub (more beneficial) or a sugar scrub (less harsh).
Coconut oil not only smells delicious, it also happens to be a brilliant moisturizer for skin and hair. The tropical topical has decent amounts of the antioxidant vitamin E, acting as a protectant.
You should feel great about putting this natural recipe on your body (or mom’s).
For Mother’s Day gifts I paired the Summer Coconut Scub with Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons.
