QC DIY: Organic Shower Scrub

This Christmas, instead of simply handling all of my shopping online as I am usually wont to do, I decided to put my paws to work and create as many homemade gifts as I could.  This included an organic raw sugar and virgin coconut oil shower scrub, which is a relatively quick and easy beauty remedy for dry skin — no mean feat in the winter, but truly makes a great gift all year-round.  While the scrub itself doesn’t take much effort, I especially enjoyed working on the packaging.  My East Coast recipients received pretty blue Heritage Collection Ball Jars topped with brown craft paper, green twine, manila packing tags and a spring of evergreen.  My West Coasters received rubber gasket jars topped with ribbon and smudge sticks from Juniper Ridge.

Ingredients (all organic if possible): raw sugar, virgin coconut oil, argan oil, essential oils (optional)

Combine two parts sugar to one part coconut oil in a large bowl.  Add a tablespoon of argan oil and mix well.  If you want to add fragrance — I honestly like it without, and prefer the natural coconut/sugar scent, but to each her own — essential oils are most effective, but you can also try natural ingredients like vanilla extract, lemon zest, fresh mint.  Pop the mix into a jar and you’re all done!  Easy!
