February. A month of snow, frigid air, and love. Wait, one of those things doesn’t belong! Whether Valentines Day for you means spending time with a loved one, going out, or staying in, I think we can all agree that a little self-love is necessary. This DIY coconut lavender body scrub is my new favorite way to pamper myself. And bonus, it makes a great gift as well! Hint hint.
It’s made with only 4 ingredients and in 1 container. Yes, you read that right. So easy! I made this batch in my stasher bag because it’s easy to mix, leaves zero mess, and stores perfectly. If the mixture hardens in the cold, you can easily break it down by massaging the bag. So what are you waiting for? Get to it.
DIY Natural Coconut Lavender Body Scrub
- 2 cups Epsom salt crystals
- 1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil (melted)
- 12-15 drop lavender essential oil (or any scent)
- 1 Tbsp. dried lavender
Add Epsom salt, dried lavender, coconut oil, and essential oil to a sandwich size stasher bag. Push out as much air as possible and zip. Massage the closed bag until everything is thoroughly incorporated.
Leave the bag zipped in the shower, on the sink, or pack it for travel!
Add a handful to baths, as a scrub in the shower, or on hands as an exfoliator. The magnesium from the Epsom salt acts as a muscle relaxant and the lavender oil lulls you into a nice calm, so it’s best used before bed!
