Homemade Holiday Gifts Part 2

If you are a member of either my immediate family or Chad’s please skip this post until after Christmas!

I don’t want to spoil any surprises. 🙂

As you know from my last post, Chad and I have decided to make homemade gifts for our loved ones this holiday. If you’re interested, read about our first present here.

Here’s our second homemade holiday gift: an exfoliating body scrub.

Exfoliating Body Scrub


  • Dry measuring cups
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Fork for mixing
  • 8 or 10 oz. glass container


  • 1 cup coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 cup liquid coconut oil hemp seed or vegetable oil also works!
  • 5-7 drops essential oil


  • In the large mixing bowl, mix the salt and the oil together. Stir well.
  • Add 5 – 7 drops of the essential oil. Again, stir well, until everything is combined.
  • Spoon or pour the mix into the glass jars, sealing tight.

To Use

  • Spoon a small amount of scrub into your hands, gently rub it in, and rinse it off with warm water. dry your hands thoroughly.
    Use 1-2 times a week for best results.

  1. Oh I love this idea! I’m all about making gifts for Christmas, although I tend to go for jam or fruit spirits. But this looks really quite straightforward and easily personalised with oils too – great idea, thank you for sharing! Lisa x
