Anyone that knows me knows that I am a huge fan of coconut oil, and I also love crafting. With that being said, when my cousin and I were fishing for ideas for a favor for her bridal shower, coconut oil salt scrub was one of the first things that came to mind. I love this as a gift idea, because you can make many of them quickly and when you make them in bulk, they average out to be less than $1.50 each. They are perfect for bridal or baby showers, gifts for clients or co-workers, or as a cheap treat to yourself! We used lavender and lemon essential oils in ours, although it is not necessary. Peppermint or vanilla essential oils are also great in this recipe, especially if you are making them as Christmas gifts!
The recipe for 1- 4 ounce container is below.
1 ounce of coconut oil
2 ounce of Epsom Salt.
8 drops of essential oil ( Optional)
1-4 ounce mason jar
Mix all 3 ingredients in a bowl. If the mixture feels too thick, you can add a little more coconut oil.
I suggest that if you are making many of them at a time like we did, that you buy the coconut oil in bulk. We bought a 54 ounce jar of it at Costco for $15.99, which was a great deal! If you buy it at the grocery store, the containers are much smaller, and pricey.
We decorated ours with a nautical stamp, since her wedding and shower has a nautical theme.
