With Mother’s Day this weekend, it’s time to start thinking about gifts for the special women in your lives. Now, I don’t know about you…but as a Mother myself, I prefer gifts that are of the pampering kind. I have been obsessed with using DoTerra Essential Oils and just got some Lime oil. It smells AMAZING! So…I made a Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub.
If you have been hanging around The Idea Room, you have been aware of my Sugar Scrub obsession. At the bottom of this post, I will share with you my entire collection of Sugar Scrubs so that you can take a look at them if you are interested.
Since my food allergy diagnosis, I have incorporated Coconut Oil as my main cooking/baking base and I am in LOVE with it. It is the perfect oil to use in this scrub because it has a slight scent and leaves the sugar a nice, crisp white. It also leaves your freshly scrubbed skin feeling soft and smooth.
Plus, the combination of Lime and Coconut scream summer, which we are totally looking forward to at our house. I also threw in some fresh grated coconut to give the scrub a little more texture.
You just might want to eat this stuff…which would totally be fine since everything is edible :)!
All you need is a cute jar and a label, which I am providing as a free download (see below for link) and you have a great gift for that special Mother or woman in your life. You will want to make a really big batch so you can keep some for yourself!
Or if you want to get really creative, you could gift your sugar scrub inside of a coconut shell after the fresh coconut meat has been removed. Then wrap it up with a cellophane wrapper and a cute little tag.
To make this Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub, you will need the following items.
Granulated White Sugar
doTerra Essential Lime Oil
Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1 cup white sugar
1 TBSP shredded coconut
6-8 drops of Lime Essential Oil
