This DIY sugar scrub will make you think you're a unicorn. Don't worry, we won't tell anyone you're not.
With nature blooming, and summer coming, it has us feeling very colorful. So, in honor of the way nature is showing off its color credentials, we figure we have a right to do the same.
The way to do that? Via a DIY Sugar Scrub with essential oil. This layered scrub has all the colors you'd find in a rainbow and all the scents you'd find while gallivanting through Willy Wonka's factory.
In sum: This Sugar Scrub will make you feel like a unicorn, and who isn't about feeling that way?
BE A UNICORN SUGAR SCRUB:
What You Need:
+ 1/3 Cup Organic Sugar
+ 1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Melted)
+ All Natural Food Coloring (We used these )
+ 12 Drops of Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil
+ 1 Storage Container
How to Make:
First, gather your materials, and organize them to make the next steps easier.
Next, you'll want to melt your coconut oil. To do so, place in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
After, add the sugar and the coconut oil into a medium sized bowl. Mix together.
Then, separate the coco/sugar mix into 3 separate containers.
Add 4 Drops of the pink dye to one, blue dye to another, and green dye to the last.
Place 2 drops of essential oil in each container.
Finally, in a separate, larger container, layer the three colors.
