V-Day DIY with the Pheebster

A pre-Valentine’s Day visit from my niece prompted a fun day of DIY. Our mission was to make the perfect gift for her mom (my sister Adrianne). As we planned and shopped, her list of giftees grew longer, so I came up with two quick gifts to make: chocolate lollipops and sugar scrub.

I’ve been using this scrub for a few years now, and it’s simply the best. It’s perfect in winter months for dull skin, and great in the summer for that sandy, sweaty skin.

Here’s what you need:
1 cup of sugar (I use coconut sugar, but any sugar works)
1/2 cup of coconut oil (olive oil is fine too)
1 tablespoon of honey
4–6 drops of lemon-scented essential oils (or juice of an entire lemon)

If you want to scent it, any of the following are great:
Citrus Essential Oils
Grapefruit Essential Oils (I also use this for swelling and cellulite)
Pure Moroccan Vanilla Extract

Mix it all together and store in a mason jar. We sourced our jars, ribbon, and packaging from Target and Michael’s. We hope you enjoy! Xx
