"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. For me, Christmas is the best season of the year, where 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, delicious foods; my favorite of all 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 that I know, but I don't have such as budget; my tiny amount of money is crying for help. The truth is, I came from a big family, my list of the family probably is longest than Santa Claus Christmas's 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, affordable, and I know they 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
6 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
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 all together.
3. Divided into two separate bowl
4. Add food coloring to one of the bowls, little at a time; keep mixing and adding the color until the desired color is reached.
5. Layered the sugar scrub color by alternate putting the paint on the jar one scoop at a time.
P.S I know some of you were concerned about food coloring will stain skin. I tried this so many times before and I can assure you that 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 on 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!
