DIY Sugar Scrub with FREE Printable!

DIY Sugar Scrub with FREE Printable!
My winter hands appreciate being treated to a decadent coconut oil sugar scrub occasionally, but the thrifty DIYer in me knew I could make it myself easily, so I experimented with a few simple ingredients and came up with a combination I loved enough to give as Christmas gifts last year!  You can’t beat this scrub for exfoliating and moisturizing dry skin, or as a thoughtful, handmade gift any time of year!
The only essential ingredients are sugar and coconut oil – the remaining ingredients are up to your imagination! My current favorite sugar scrub combination is lavenderbergamot and vanilla bean, but orange zest and clove oil is an amazing combo too!

INGREDIENTS
¾ cup coconut oil 
1 cup sugar
20 drops lavender oil (optional)
20 drops bergamot oil (optional)

Seeds from ½ vanilla bean (optional)

LET’S MAKE IT!

Slice whole vanilla bean in half, then slice one half lengthwise and scrape out beans with back of paring knife or spoon.
Add vanilla beans and all remaining ingredients to a stand mixer bowl.
Whip on medium high until light and fluffy.

Store in covered, 8 oz wide mouth canning jar.
Place adhesive label on top of lid and tie raffia or ribbon around jar lid.

This is the only chicken site that I have come to trust. Never been steered wrong. Thanks so much! With the bitter New England cold the EcoGlow would be great for those truly bitter nights. I don’t normally heat my coop, but when its -10+ I get worried for my girls. I just added 3 new hens to my flock, mostly for warmth.

Yeah, I did leave a review of your book. I keep going back to it during the day when I think of something I’m not quite sure of. I get the answer every time. Haven’t had a question that I couldn’t find something about in the book.
