Thanks be to God for Pinterest. The ideas and things you can learn how to do just blows my mind. I love it WAY more than Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. YouTube is another favorite cause HEY…there’s so much learning going on over there. :-) The amount of time most people spend on Facebook would be how much time I’m on Pinterest. I must confess I’m a little addicted to it ;-) Any free time I get I may pop into FB for less than 10 minutes, and about the same for Twitter and Google+. Anyhoo after some searching I found two products to make that I wanted to share.
As you can see I made two different sugar scrubs. I made some DIY Vanilla Sugar Lip Scrub as well as some Brown Sugar Face~n~Body Scrub.
This is the Vanilla Sugar Lip Scrub. To make it you’ll need:
1 Tbsp. Brown or white granulate sugar
1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
2 drops of vanilla extract (go easy on this it’s just for scent)
Mix it all together in a small bowl and transfer to a jar with an airtight lid. I used one of my small Mason jars. I store this in the downstairs bathroom where it’s much cooler. I used it once this week and love it. Immediately I could feel how soft it made my lips. Don’t be tempted to eat it up because it takes good. I plan to use this a few times a week to keep soft and kissable lips for hubby.
This is the Brown Sugar Face~n~Body Scrub. To make it you’ll need:
1 cup packed Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
Mix it all together in a small bowl and transfer to a jar with an airtight lid. I used my Mason jar with a clamp. I also store this in the downstairs bathroom where it’s much cooler. I use this once a week. If I need to use it in the shower I just get a little out and put it into something unbreakable because I know an accident is waiting to happen if I don’t. Now we don’t want that to happen do we? :-(
I plan to play around with some more scents and flavors once these are all gone. I love making my own products. I can control what’s in them and I get to save money cause they last much longer. That’s a win in my book!
