The lavender and lemon essential oils are optional because if you don’t have any on hand, there’s no need to buy it. 

The lemon zest will release their own oils into the blend. As for the lavender buds- give them a gentle squeeze as you’re pouring them into the jar so you can release their oils. 

How to make:

  • Pour 1 cup sifted (or not) granulated sugar into your glass jar. 
  • Add 2 tbsp. coconut oil and mix really well. If it’s still too clumpy for you, add a small dollop at a time until you reach the consistency you want. 
  • Pour the lavender buds with your fingers gently squeezing the buds to release their oils and fragrance. 
  • Then add the lemon zest. If you’re adding in the essential oils, now’s the time.

If you have super dry skin, oil your body BEFORE you get in the shower. The oil will act as a protective barrier against the water.
