DIY Lavender Salt Scrub

Hi everyone,

Today I have a DIY project to share with you.  I have been wanting to make my own Lavender Salt Scrub.  What a great way to unwind after a long day or to pamper your skin during the winter months.  All you need are three ingredients and a glass jar - simple and easy!

Epsom salt is fantastic for exfoliating your skin and making it feel soft.  Coconut oil helps to moisturize dry skin.  Lavender essential oil adds the perfect aroma to your scrub.

In a glass bowl, mix Epsom salt, coconut oil and Lavender essential oil.

I then added a teaspoon of organic dried lavender buds (optional).

These particular buds are "Ultra Blue" grown in the Provence region of France, near Montbrun Les Bains.

Transfer mixture to a glass jar with covered lid.

Decorate with a pretty label and ribbon.


  • 1 cup Epsom Salt
  • 1/2 cup organic extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 8 drops Lavender essential oil
  • Organic dried lavender buds (optional)
Since I enjoy making scrubs I do them in smaller batches.  You can double the recipe for a pint sized mason jar.  Please remember to always use therapeutic-grade essential oils since this will be going on your skin.

Happy exfoliating!

Heart Candy Bags

Hi everyone,

Today I have something sweet to share with you.  A while ago I purchased a bunch of Longaberger Hershey's Kisses Sweetheart fabric bags.  They were on clearance and you couldn't beat the price!

When they arrived my husband said to me, "What are you going to do with all those bags?"  Well, now he knows - each one was filled with Hershey Kisses & Hearts.  Isn't the fabric just adorable with the hearts and kisses?

I have already boxed some to mail to family & friends.  This basket will be brought to work for co-workers to enjoy.  A cute and simple way to show my appreciation.

  I didn't want to settle for a boring rectangular box and wanted to put a little bit more "heart" into Valentine's Day.  The leftover candy went to hubby so it was a win-win!

Thank you for dropping by to visit.  Have a sweet day!
