I know everyone is scrambling to get everything done before Christmas and sometimes at the last minute you realize that you don't have a gift for someone. How could you forget? Well it does happen, but relax, I have a quick and simple solution - homemade sugar body scrub. It's easy to make and smells and feels great!
The recipe calls for: 2 cups white granulated sugar, 1/4 cup coconut oil, an essential oil (I used lemon) and food colouring of your choice (I couldn't find yellow, so I chose green).
Mix the sugar and coconut oil until well mixed (like pictured below), then add a few drops of the essential oil & mix. Separate the sugar/coconut oil mixture in two separate bowls, and in one of the bowls, add a few drops of food colouring & mix (it doesn't take too many drops to colour it).
In an attractive container, alternate layers of the coloured and non-coloured mixture, and voila, you're done! Now you can gift it as-is, or wrap it up. You might even want to keep some for yourself :)
