Grapefruit Citrus Body Scrub

- 1/2 tsp. grapefruit juice
- 1 c. granulated sugar
- 1/2 sea salt
- 2 tb. coconut oil (or oil of your choice)

Lavender Salt Scrub
- 1/2 c. sea salt
- 1/3 c. grapeseed oil (or oil of your choice)
- 1 tb. dried lavender
- a few drops of lavender essential oil (to your preference)
Combine salt and grapeseed oil in a bowl. Mix in dried lavender. Depending on how much you (or mom!) like the scent of lavender, sprinkle in some lavender essential oil to bump up the power. Because of the corse sea salt, this is the perfect foot scrub for mom’s at-home pedis!
Rose Petal Scrub
- Rose petals (or any flower of your choice)
- 1 c granulated sugar
- 1/2 coconut oil (or oil of your choice)
Combine petals and sugar in a bowl. Slowly incorporate oil. Add any essential oils if you want a more powerful scent. Place in an airtight container. This delicate scrub will exfoliate away any dry skin, while the coconut oil will leave mom’s hands feeling soft and elegant.
