Below is an amazing go-to sugar scrub recipe you can use to make gifts for a hostesses, Mother’s day, bridal showers, and a hundreds of other occasions. This recipe will makes for 6 x 4oz Lavender sugar scrub presentations.
My personal favorite essential oil to use is lavender with just a touch of peppermint oil to really amplify that mind-clearing cooling effect it has, but you can definitely swap the lavender and peppermint out for lemon, eucalyptus, orange, or any other oil you prefer.*

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar

In a microwave safe measuring cup, buzz the Coconut oil in the microwave for 20 seconds, stir, and repeat until the oil is just melted but not hot.
In a large glass bowl, add the sugar, coconut oil, 10-15 drops of lavender oil, 3-5 drops of peppermint oil, one drop of red food coloring, and one drop or blue food coloring.
