One snowy winter day my darling friend Lili and I decided we were going to make some give away gifts for girlfriends. Valentines day was coming up and we thought a brown sugar body scrub would be perfect!! Who wouldn't love that, right!? The whole thing cost us about $100 each (including jars) and made for a fun activity to do inside on yet another crazy snow day.
If you are interested in trying to make the scrub yourself here is the recipe we used....
Vanilla sticks (one stick does two jars)
Coconut Oil (1/2 a cup per jar)
Shea Butter (one cup per jar)
*you will need to fill your jar about 3/4 the way full so keep that in mind and multiply by the # of jars you want to make
Fill your jar about 3/4 the way full with brown sugar.
On a stove at low heat melt the Shea Butter, once it is a liquid add the coconut oil, stir and remove from heat. Let it cool slightly before adding it to the jar and stirring it in.
Slice a vanilla stick in half and remove the vanilla paste with a knife from the inside. Add the paste to the jar and stir. You can also cut the vanilla stick you scrapped in quarters and add it to the scrub for extra scent if you like.
That's it!!! So easy right!?
