DIY Rose & Lavender Body Scrub
Among the limitless number of beauty potions created using heirloom flowers, body scrubs are one of my favorites.
What You'll Need
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
Large glass bowl
½ cup + 1 TBSP cups coconut or olive oil
10-12 drops lavender essential oil
2 tsp. dried lavender flower buds
Rose petals (1-2 roses)
Spoon (or small scoop) for stirring and scooping
Make Your Scrub
Pour the sugar into a large bowl. Add the coconut oil on top of the sugar.
Add the lavender essential oil drops on top of the coconut oil, then add the dried lavender buds to the bowl.
Add the rose petals by tearing them into a pleasing size. Drop the petals into the sugar mixture and stir until everything is well blended.
Scoop your body scrub into an airtight container. Scrubs with fresh ingredients such as flower petals will last in an airtight jar about 2 weeks.
To use, apply a generous amount of scrub to wet skin and rub it onto your body using a circular motion. Rinse off.
