Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub

It’s holiday time! I am a highschool teacher; I may get a couple of gift cards, but it’s the elementary and preschool teachers that get the good stuff. I mean, they deal with our kids ALL DAY LONG; I just have them for 45 minutes a day!

I contributed money for my daughter’s teacher, but we don’t have a room mother at my son’s preschool. This left me scrambling at Target on Saturday, hoping that they had something decent that I could pick up. I got them each a Starbucks Gift Card, but I felt lame.

My skin has been pretty dry, and I thought about making a scrub this weekend. Why not make them one too? While I was at Target, I picked up some washi gold and white tape, a gold and white ribbon, a gold Sharpie, and a snowman carrier in order to make them pretty. I had the jars in my basement already, which I had bought on Amazon; check out Ball Mason 4oz Quilted Jelly Jars with Lids and Bands, Set of 12.

I don’t know if his teachers will like this sugar scrub, but at least it is a thoughtful addition to a non-personal gift card. Plus, it makes your hands feel soft and moisturized, and it smells divine! I’m obsessed with all things Lime. Try it in the diffuser with Bergamot at night – you will thank me later 😉

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup sugar
  2. 1 cup coconut oil ( I used cold-pressed unrefined organic coconut oil that I got from Costco)
  3. 40 drops Young Living Lime Essential Oil
  4. 6 – 4 oz jars

This mix is so easy!  

Directions:

  1. Mix the sugar and coconut oil together.
  2. Add the Lime Essential Oil and combine until evenly distributed.img_9202
  3. Put the scrub into jars.
  4. Wrap the washi tape around the top of the jar for a little decoration.
  5. Tie a ribbon on top of the tape for some added flare.img_9211
  6. Write on the top of the jar with the Sharpie.img_9234
  7. I put them in these little cute snowman carriers for him to deliver tomorrow.img_9240

Happy Holidays!
