This lavender sugar scrub is the perfect thing to add to your bed time routine or to gift to a friend.
When I begin thinking of how I want to thank friends and family, I automatically turn to homemade gifts. There’s something about thinking of something, creating it, and then making it beautiful that really resonates with someone.
I like to get creative with my gift-giving. I’ve never created my own sugar scrub before. And after a bit of research, I realized how easy it was. I even had fun and gave my little concoction its own name!

Why make your own beauty products?
There are a slew of reasons you would want to begin creating your own beauty products – gaining control of what products your family uses, cutting out a grocery store and choosing higher quality products being chief among them.
Whatever route you take to creating your own beauty products, just know that you are creating something beautiful for you and your family. And taking ownership of what we put on, and in, our bodies is never something to be ashamed of.
