sunday diy: COCONUT + ROSE BODY SCRUB

THIS BODY SCRUB IS PERFECT TO TREAT TO USE ON YOUR SKIN...
It smells INCREDIBLE and makes your skin feel super-smooth and super-soft! 

You’ll need: 
a jar
coconut oil
raw cane sugar
almond or jojoba oil
one fragrant rose.


TO DIY: 1. Use a small clear jar with a lid.

2. Start by putting a large scoop of coconut oil in the bottom of the jar. You can get coconut oil at any health food store or major supermarket. It’s an “oil” but at room temp it’s more like a butter consistency and has a white paste-y texture. 

3. Next, pick your rose petals and put them into the jar on top of the coconut oil. 

4. Add your raw sugar. If you can’t find raw cane sugar, brown sugar is a great option! The coarser the better. 

5. Add your almond or jojoba oil on top of the sugar, which you can also find at health food stores or vitamin stores. Jojoba is the closest thing to our own natural oil and it absorbs really nicely into the skin ~ almond oil is great too because it doesn’t take away from the scent in this jar. 

6. Wait a minute for your oil to seep down to the flower petals and then top it off with a little more almond or jojoba oil. Last but not least, put your lid on and let it sit so the oils can soak into the flower petals. 

When you're ready to use it, take a spoon and mash it all up. The coarse sugar will break up the rose petals and they’ll continue to break up as you rub the scrub on your skin.
This scrub can have a shelf life of one year.
