Easy Floral Sugar Scrub

My Rose Jasmine Sugar Scrub is one of my favorite tutorials, and apparently a lot of you like it too!  However, I recently tried a slightly different variant of the sugar scrub, which I ended up liking even better.  In fact, I whipped up 3 jars quickly for the Peanut’s preschool teachers, and they asked me to tell them how I did it.  This is SO EASY and SO QUICK, and people can’t believe that you actually made it.  Given my frantic schedule, that’s a win-win.  It’s perfect for Mother’s Day too!  Let me show you how to make this lightning fast easy floral sugar scrub for your kiddo’s grandmothers, aunts or teachers.  Once you’ve started making it, you’ll make batch after batch!

Start by putting your coconut oil in the microwave to soften it a bit if needed.  It’s better if it’s the consistency of a liquid soap rather than entirely solid.  It mixes easily with the other ingredients that way.  You will only need to microwave it for about 20 seconds to soften it.  Once it is softened, pour it into the sugar.

The biggest way that this easy floral sugar scrub is different from my previous tutorial is the addition of the fractionated coconut oil that remains in liquid form when at room temperature.  I noticed with my previous sugar scrub recipe that it tended to become more solid due to the consistency of the coconut oil.    Basically it’s a variant of coconut that goes through additional refinement processes to make it more stable.  However, it keeps the sugar scrub less solid, and but has many of the great benefits of coconut oil.

Add both the tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil, and the Vitamin E Oil (which is also great for the skin).  The last step is the essential oils and colorant.  I did a springtime floral blend of geranium, jasmine and lavender with a 1:1:1 ratio.  Because you can always add, but never remove, slowly add the ratio until you have reached the desire scent.  I started with 12 drops of each, and then I think I ultimately added 2 drops more of each.  However, you might decided that you need more scent!

Then add your soap colorant.  I like pinky-purple, as you probably know, so that’s the color that I went with.  However, make it your own!Looking for a homemade gift idea for Mother's Day? This DIY Easy Floral Sugar Scrub can be made in under 10 minutes, with enough to give to several people.

I used a pink tinted jar, a tag and baker’s twine to create a label.

I also added a wooden scoop to the top of the jar with pink washi tape.  Now I have two large jars of Easy Floral Sugar Scrub that smells like springtime to give to both of the boys’ grandmothers for Mother’s Day!  And it only takes 10 minutes (or less!)
