Does anyone else love love love lavender, or is it just me? I was SO excited when I got myself some lavender essential oil. And the first thing I did with it? Made a lavender sugar scrub.
I love sugar scrubs. To be perfectly honest, these days, who doesn’t? Sugar scrubs make your hands soft, you get the various benefits of whatever essential oils you get, and they’re fun (and easy) to make.
You can literally make this simple lavender scrub recipe in under five minutes. I love using it on my hands, but lately I’ve been using sugar scrubs in the shower. Especially with lavender, it’s great for aromatherapy and for absorbing topically (especially through hands and feet) for relaxation + destressing.

Making this lavender sugar scrub made me super happy, not only because of the amazing smell, but also because of this pretty purple color I got. More on that down below.
DIY Lavender Sugar Scrub Ingredients:

Simple Lavender Sugar Scrub Instructions:
Fully melt the coconut oil (I find that the sugar absorbs it better this way)

Add the lavender essential oil + food coloring. (I used 2 drops of red and 1.5 drops of blue.) Mix this super well.
Store in an air-tight container.
