Candy Cane Body Scrup
"It's the most wonderful time of the year and hap-happiest season of all," and yes, I couldn't agree more with Andy Williams's Christmas song. Christmas is the best season of the year when the family who lives far and near can dine, cuddle and sing in front of the fireplace to celebrate this joyful time together. Christmas is about beautiful decor, lovely parties, and delicious foods; my favorite is shopping for Christmas gifts for friends and family. Although the thrill of searching for the right Christmas gift is fun and exciting also, I would love to give a Christmas gift to everyone I know, but my budget is limited, and my tiny amount of money is crying for help. The truth is, I came from a big family, and my list of family is probably longer than Santa Claus's Christmas list (yes, I'm exaggerating). So, to make Christmas gifts affordable, I'll do DIY presents, and one of them is Candy cane sugar scrub is the perfect gift for family and friends.
Sugar scrubs are a great way to pamper yourself, add moisture, and soften your dry winter skin, and They also smell so good. It is so easy to make and affordable; I know you will love it, too.
And, as much as I love this product, I'm willing to share with you:
2 cups white granulated sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
Red food coloring
1 tsp Shea or mango butter (melted)
3 drops Vanilla essential oil
1. Mix sugar, coconut oil, and Shea or Mango butter in the bowl.
2. Add peppermint essential oil and vanilla essential oil and mix.
3. Divided into two separate bowl
4. Add food coloring to one of the bowls, a little at a time; keep mixing and adding the color until the desired color is reached.
5. Layered the sugar scrub color by putting the paint on the jar one scoop at a time.
P.S. Some of you were concerned that food coloring would stain skin. I tried this many times before, and I assure you it'll wash away with water. And if you have some allergy to food coloring, I advise you to try this on a small area of your skin or skip the food coloring; you'll be fine.
Thank you so much for stopping by; for the next post, it'll be more DIY for Christmas and Christmas Decor, so please stay put, and I'll see you on the next post!
