The weather outside is frightful! Best you make inside so delightful.
Vancouver was about as “snowed-in” as we get. My car hasn’t moved for the last 48-hours.
We have traded in our usual gloomy days, for a slip-and-slide.
Movies are a great warm option (check out my top five favourite claymation movies here).
This girl can only check Facebook so many times… and watch so many movies, before I need something to do.
SO, I made some sugar scrub!
It is easy! In fact, you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen/bathroom. I do believe it could be a fun activity for a gals-night, or a crafty gift idea!
Other perks: It took all of ten minutes to make… and other than a few dishes, clean-up was a breeze.
A win-win in my books.
What You Need:
2 Cups Sugar (You can use any sugar you have OR salt)
1/4 Cup of Avocado Oil (Sub: Coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil)
3-5 Drops Essential Oil (I used Urban Body Organics Breathe Inhalation Oil)
3 Drops Food Colour (Fruit juice works: Raspberry juice is nice, but more perishable)
2 Measuring cups
1 Mixing bowl
1 Large Spoon
2 Small spoons
2 x 250ml Mason Jars
Twine, bows, parchment paper, stickers, or anything else to decorate the mason jar.
Mix 2 cups of sugar with avocado oil and essential oil, in mixing bowl. Remove 1 cup of sugar into measuring cup. In mixing bowl, add food colouring. Mix until evenly distributed. Layer sugar in mason jar.
Benefits: Sugar scrub is excellent to rub on those dry lips (and really any dry body parts). The oil moisturizes, as the scrub removes the dry skin.
