The Friday Fix is all about simple fixes that you can do at the end of a long week. It might be something you do for your home, yourself, or others. Today's "fix" covers all three areas.
We're going to learn how to create a treat for tired hands with this Fall-inspired sugar scrub. There are three great things about a do-it-yourself hand scrub:
- It's affordable
- The recipe is absolutely goof-proof
- Most of the ingredients can be found right in your pantry
- BOTH women and men appreciate the soothing effects of a-bit-o-sugar-scrub-love!
Okay, so that was actually 4 things. But it's Friday and who's really in the mood for counting anyways?
How to Make Your Own Sugar Scrub
Here's What You'll Need:
Citrus Cinnamon Coconut Scrub
- 1 c organic sugar (I used this brand)
- 1/4 c of organic coconut oil (here's the brand I used)
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
- 8-10 drops of citrus essential oil
*This ingredient will allow you to enjoy the fall aromas without leaving a gingerbread scent on your hands.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Hands down, the star of this scrub is the organic coconut oil. This stuff is awesome! Even when used alone, it is nothing short of a miracle in a jar. Nevertheless, any who are skeptical, can always substitute the coconut oil with olive oil instead.
Ideas for Storing Your Homemade Sugar Scrub
Ideas for Canisters
Of course we can't just dump this lovely concoction into a recycled Cool Whip bowl. Remember this is a treat, so it ought to be packaged like one. Here are some ideas:
- A recycled glass candle container
- A candy dish (here's one at Dollar Tree)
- A small apothecary jar
Notice the empty Bed Bath & Beyond candle jar underneath the sugar scrub. This is where I will store an extra batch of the mixture.
The fragrance from this is has just the right amount of subtlety. Why not give this a try this weekend. If you do, I'd love to know what you think.
One more favor may I ask of you?
