DIY Lavender Sugar Scrub

I tried out this super easy DIY Lavender Sugar Scrub and wanted to share because it’s a perfect gift to make for Mother’s Day! I think handmade gifts are always the best so what better way to tell your mom you love them by giving them a homemade gift that helps them relax. Read on to see how to make this.

Sugar Scrub Ingredients
  • 1 cup of sugar – look for one with a coarser grain
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 7 drops of lavender oil
  • 1 tablespoon of lavender buds
  • Cute container –  used an old jam jar but a mason jar would do nicely with some ribbon!
Sugar Scrub Instructions
  1. Combine the sugar, coconut oil, and lavender oil until you have a smooth paste.
  2. Gently fold in lavender buds
  3. Seal the scrub in your container
  4. Use your homemade sugar scrub and enjoy the fresh scent and smooth skin!

I tried this scrub out and it stays fresh for a few weeks so long as you remember to keep your container sealed. It’s definitely more of a body scrub and shouldn’t be used on the face because its texture is on the coarser side. The scent of lavender is so relaxing and the addition of lavender buds gives the scrub a refined, elegant look.
