I have been making homemade beauty products since I was about 12. I had my first spa day not long before that (my mom spoiled me and started me off young, I think now she regrets it…HA!). I love being able to use all-natural ingredients and mix them all together to create luxurious and wonderfully smelling products that make you feel and look beautiful.
I’ve mentioned before, that I made it a goal to switch my entire skincare routine to an all-natural and eco-friendly one. So, many of my products are ones that I make myself.
One of the easiest products that I seriously LOVE making is body scrubs, just mix some oil and sugar and violá! You have your own homemade bath product! My oil of choice in homemade scrubs is my favorite beauty product out there – coconut oil.
This recipe creates a lovely scented scrub that it also easy on the eyes. It is extremely simple and costs less than almost ANY store bought product…and it only has 3 ingredients! This makes a great gift around the holidays or as a last minute gift, or you can treat yourself to a spa day at home! Grab a pretty glass jar and it is just as beautiful as those expensive spa products loaded with crazy chemicals.
I especially love using this scrub after a nice long bath using some homemade bath salts and to keep my skin extra moisturized in the winter. I will even slather on some whipped body body after my scrub!
