I just love this idea from The Beauty Department, especially with the warmer weather just around the corner. Perfect as a christmas gift. I love scrubs for my body to help exfoliate and renew skin regeneration. this is a lovely gift idea also for someone special. Would you make this for yourself or give as a gift?
How to make your very own Coconut + Rose Body Scrub......
You’ll need: a mason jar, coconut oil, raw cane sugar, almond or jojoba oil and one fragrant rose (here I used sterling silver roses because they’re my favorite AND they’re one of the most fragrant roses ever.)
Use a small mason jar or any clear jar with a lid.
Start by putting a large scoop of coconut oil in the bottom of the jar. You can get coconut oil at any health food store or major supermarket. It’s an “oil” but at room temp it’s more like a butter consistency and has a white paste-y texture.
Next, pluck your rose petals and put them into the jar on top of the coconut oil.
Add your raw sugar. If you can’t find raw cane sugar, brown sugar is a great option! The coarser the better.
Add your almond or jojoba oil on top of the sugar. I like jojoba oil best, which you can also find at health food stores or vitamin stores, because it’s the closest thing to our own natural oil and it absorbs really nicely into the skin. But almond oil is great too because it doesn’t take away from the scent in this jar.
Wait a minute for your oil to seep down to the flower petals and then top it off with a little more almond or jojoba oil. Last but not least, put your lid on and let it sit so the oils can soak into the flower petals.
