Recipe | DIY Sugar Scrub December 01 2016 by Holistic Aesthetician
The holiday season is in full swing! With just over 3 weeks remaining until Christmas Day, we wanted to share a quick + easy DIY recipe that makes a perfect handmade gift. This all natural sugar scrub is ideal for all skin types, and can be used on the face + body. It will leave your skin feeling nourished, soft and smooth!
I must admit that I've become a bit DIY fanatic lately. Over the past few years i've made a point of crafting gifts by hand and putting my skills to good use. One year was soups, snacks and baked goods - the next was pancake and cookie recipe mixes - and now, SCRUBS! I am obsessed with sugar and coffee scrubs. They are SO easy to make, inexpensive, and an absolute delight to use!
