All Natural Body Scrubs: DIY Gift Idea!

DIY organic gift ideas Looking for an inexpensive, last minute gift that is thoughtful and all natural? It's a tall order but we have an easy DIY solution! Body scrubs in luscious fragrances are a quick and easy gift idea for anyone. All you need is to scour your kitchen and find some pretty jars!

 As a person with very dry skin, I have tried nearly every store-bought beauty product in the book. Despite all the money I have spent, none of these products have seemed to work. I have recently switched tactics and am now making sugar and salt scrubs to combat the problem.There is nothing that makes my skin feel softer and smoother.

Exfoliating products can be exorbitantly priced in stores, but you can make them yourself for a fraction of the cost, without all the additives. These scrubs keep well and make great gifts. There are many combinations that work well, but these are the two I particularly love:

Lavender Body Scrub

This scrub has a very calming effect on the body. I love this after a stressful day!

You'll need:

1/2 cup course sea salt

1/4 cup organic coconut oil (other oils such as almond or jojoba also work great)

Dried lavender (you can add a lavender essential oil if you have it on-hand, otherwise, just stick to the 3 ingredients)


Directions: Pour salt into a mixing bowl.
