When it comes to celebrating Mother’s Day I love to not only give my Mom something she really wants like Amazon gift cards, but I like to make something special for her too. This year I thought it would be fun to make something she could use to help relax after a long day at work. This easy to make Tropical Orange Vanilla Sugar Scrub smells so heavenly, I know she’ll love it.
2 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
10-15 Drops Doterra Wild Orange Essential Oil
Grated Orange Zest from one whole orange
This sugar scrub is so easy to make, I love using my awesome Vitamix to whip it up. I set my Vitamix at 6 and it mixes the scrub mixture perfectly. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides if needed.
Start by adding all the ingredients – Sugar, Orange Zest, Coconut Oil, Essential Oils, and Vanilla to the blender. Simply pulse all the ingredients together. Be careful not to pulse too much, you want your sugar to remain course.
Note: Use granulated sugar for sensitive skin, and course sugar for tough skin. When adding the essential oils you can adjust the amount according to your liking.
Once you’ve got the scrub all mixed up you can either put it in some cute jars to give as a gift or store in an airtight container. I found my cute jars with tiny wood scoops at Hobby Lobby, they were perfect for this.
Doesn’t it look so pretty all packaged up for Mother’s Day?!
