Thank you so much, Amanda, for having me guest post today! I am honored to be here. My name is Amy and I blog over at My Life From Home, a lifestyle blog with an emphasis on affordable everyday fashion, DIY, food, and home decor.
This year, one of my goals was to not only begin using more natural products on my skin and body but also to learn how to make some of these items at home. I've been experimenting a little and came up with a Vanilla & Lavender scrub that I thought I'd share with you today.
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
5-10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
1 cup of Sugar
1/4-1/2 cup of Olive Oil (sweet almond or coconut oil also work)
I love that it is only a few ingredients and these are items I know and can control.
1. Start by mixing the sugar and oil together.
2. Add your vanilla extract
3. Add Lavender oil
4. Package in a pretty jar and tie with ribbon or string
I love this DIY scrub especially for those rough spots on your skin that winter weather tends to bring. With Valentine's Day coming up, this would be a fun little gift for a friend or co-worker.
Want some other scrub ideas? Here is a recipe for coffee sugar scrub which I recently posted. This smells so amazing! If you are a coffee lover like I am, then you will love smelling like your favorite java all day long! 🙂
I would love to have you stop by My Life From Home.
Thanks and have a wonderful day!
