DIY // lavender sugar body scrub recipe

September 20, 2011

The smell of lavender can make me feel luxurious and feminine! I spent a good deal of my weekends prior to last Christmas working on a good recipe of this delicious smelling body scrub. I found that this was a great gift as well as, a welcome in the early cold morning in Minnesota.

This Christmas try giving your own DIY gifts. I will make sure you have an ample choices with coming posts from Ms Giggles!

DIY Lavender Sugar Body Scrub

With this scrub you can use any oil. I would recommend an organic canola oil or if you can, grapeseed oil. Olive oil would be okay but it does have a very strong scent and you want to stay away from that because you want the scrub to smell of lavender, not olive oil!  Stay tuned for more beauty recipes and diy!

Update: I used Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap – Peppermint for the soap.
