The minute the weather starts to cool off, my hands and other extremities start to dry out. It’s like clockwork … very annoying clockwork.

I love experimenting with my own DIY beauty products, especially scrubs. They’re so easy to make, and I like that they aren’t full of mystery chemicals. If you choose the right ingredients, homemade scrubs can also be very soothing for dry skin.

Makes a great gift! | Hello Little HomeI whipped up this Lemon Lavender Sugar Scrub over the weekend, and I’m in love! The sugar smoothed out any flakes on my skin, and the coconut oil left my hands soft and silky.

I’ve been experimenting a little with essentials oils, and I love the combination of lemon and lavender. I added a few drops of each to this scrub for a beautiful, subtle scent. You could easily use your favorite oils or even leave out the essential oils altogether for an unscented scrub.

Step by step tutorial for making Lemon Lavender Sugar Scrub ... an easy to make, wonderful smelling sugar scrub recipe that's gentle on your hands! Makes a great gift! | Hello Little HomeThis recipe is so easy! Simply combine the coconut oil and the sugar in a small bowl. If your coconut oil is solid, microwave it for a few seconds to melt it.

After you’ve combined the sugar and coconut oil, it’s time to add the essential oils. I used 8 drops of lemon and 5 drops lavender, but you could add your favorite oils or combination of oils. The scent is subtle and not overwhelming, which I prefer.

For my scrub, I used these cute jam jars. There are a lot of other jar options, too. I especially likes these adorable jars with gingham lids, and these Weck jars are really sharp.

Makes a great gift! | Hello Little HomeTo package my scrub for gift giving, I wrapped jute twine a few times around the jar’s neck. For the lid, I also cut out a circle (I used this flamingo cardstock), then labeled it with a gel pen. It turned out really cute and was simple to do.

If you don’t like your handwriting, you could easily create a label for the lid (or tie it on with the twine) using Picmonkey or a similar editing program.
