Quick, Easy, Frugal Friendly Sugar Scrub Recipe


One of my FAVORITE places to go to in Disney Springs is Basin.  I just love all the unique fragrances, hydrating scrubs, and Magical soaps!  One of my favorite products is the body scrub, I just love the way it makes my skin feel. Since adding a couple of princesses to our family, we don't get to shop in Disney Springs or visit Basin very often anymore. That's okay though, because did you know that you can make your own body scrub with just a few simple ingredients? It's true!

Basin sells a jar of their body scrub for around $35.00, but you can make your own with just three ingredients that you might already have in your home! 

Today I am going to share the recipe I recently used to create party favors for my sister in law's baby shower. This recipe was SO easy that my three year old tried to completely take over!

DIY Body Scrub
Some of my favorite essential oil scents to try. 
  • Lavender
  • Lavender and Lemon
  • Peppermint
  • Peppermint and Lavender
  • DoTerra Serenity 
Why Fractionated Coconut Oil?
Fractionated coconut oil has been processed to remove the coconut scent, and also will not harden in cooler temperatures.  



Can I use regular olive oil or coconut oil for the scrub? 
Yes. You can certainly use olive oil or the coconut oil for the scrub, I have. However, please be aware that the scent of the oil can be overpowering.

Where I buy DoTerra Essential Oils
I purchase my DoTerra essential oils directly from my mom who is a DoTerra Wellness Advocate. She has used EO's for many years and has a lot of information on improving health and well-being through the use of EO's. I'd encourage you to connect with her to purchase some oils of your own.

Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl add a 50/50 mix of sugar and coconut oil. 
  2. Add 10-15 drops of essential oils
  3. Stir until you have created the consistency you prefer
    1. If the mix is too wet, add Sugar
    2. In the mix is too dry, add oil
  4. Store in a glass container and enjoy! 
These make wonderful gifts for teachers, friends, or even party favors!
PIN FOR LATER! 


Disney Tip: 
Basin can be found in two places on the Disney World Property.
1. In Disney Springs
2. The Grand Floridian Resort 
I love to go to the one inside the Grand Floridian as it is a much smaller store, and never as crowded as the one in Disney Springs. You'll also get a chance to check out the beautiful Disney resort! *Pay attention to the floor in the Grand Floridian Lobby, you might spot some Disney Pals in the tile designs.

Christmas is such a loved season, by so many people - myself included. I love it so much, I had a Christmas themed wedding and got married...
