Last Minute Gift Idea

Need a last minute gift?  How about some wonderful organic sugar scrub?  All this gift requires is a quick trip to the grocery store for a jar of organic coconut oil and some organic raw sugar. 
I came up with this concotion myself and love it.  It smells divne too!  I used a 30.6 ounce jar of coconut oil and 1 lb. of sugar--this made a BIG batch. Heat the oil in the microwave 30 seconds at a time (make sure to take the lid off!). Then in a glass bowl mix thoroughly mix the oil and sugar and spoon into plastic containers--you don't want glass in the shower.  It hardens as it cools and is really nice consistancy to scoop out by the handful.  I attached a little cricut card describing what it is.  It is wonderful to use before shaving and gets rid of the dead, dry skin.  I also put a cautionary note that the shower surface may be slippery after use.  Try it as a gift for someone or for yourself!
