Hellooo and Salam!
I hope you all are having a wonderful week and if you are like me, you are SO behind on Eid prep, its not even funny at this point.
This year, I wanted to make something to give as Eid gifts to all the girls (sister/friends/cousins – sorry for ruining the surprise!). And I wanted it to be something fun, summery and use-able. A lot of times, we receive presents that we put aside in our closet and forget about because we can’t use them right away. This little DIY Rose Water Sugar Scrub is something that works beautifully for exfoliating your skin and even your lips, to get you summer ready 😉
Its a simple recipe and everything can be ordered from Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, literally it will all be here tomorrow and you can make these right away to gift for Eid and work perfectly as a shower favour, too!
**This recipe makes 8-10 125 ml mason jars**
What You Need
Sugar – 1.5 cup
Coconut Oil – 1/2 cup
Rose Water – 1/4 cup (I bought this at our local grocery store and usually costs a few dollars. You can swap this out with 8-10 drops of rose essential oil)
Mason Jars for packing
Labels – FREE Printable can be downloaded HERE
What You Need to Do
Melt coconut oil in the microwave and mix in the rose water. Give it a quick stir. Let it cool down – you don’t want your sugar to melt with the heat of the mixture.
Add food colour to the oil/rosewater mixture and stir while adding to get the colour you want.
Place the sugar in a large bowl, and slowly start drizzling in the liquid mixture you created in steps 1 and 2, while stirring the sugar with a rubber spatula.
You may need to add a bit less/more of the liquid mixture but the texture you are trying to get is where the sugar is still present and sticking together to make a coarse mixture. Not to worry if it becomes too liquidy – sugar scrubs tend to dry out over time. Mine became a little gloopy, but I covered it in plastic and let it sit in room temperature for a day and packed it the next day.
Once you have a scrub like consistency, put it in little jars and glue on the labels to the top of the lid.
Voila! Easy home made, all natural scrub ready to spoil yourself and others with!
There you have! A super easy DIY and a quick and inexpensive Eid/Shower/Party favour to spoil others with!
