This post is written with people like me in mind – the procrastinators, the always-late, the last-minute shoppers. If you still need something to give as a present for the holidays – FEAR NOT! This easy-peasy scrub can be put together in a matter of minutes with some ingredients you might already have at home!
Best part: This scrub is ALL NATURAL. So natural, in fact, you can rub it on your leg and then lick it off (although why you would do that is beyond me…). But I can assure you that it would taste quite good!
Because of how FEW ingredients this scrub contains and how natural they are, this would be a great gift for someone who might not react too well to many commercial products orrrrr a fellow coffee lover orrrrr you know, just someone who enjoys feeling like a baby’s bottom (you can thank the luscious coconut oil for that!).
WAIT – did I mention this is a NOLA beignet inspired scrub? I’ve never been to NOLA but I’ve recently fallen in love with this delicious chicory coffee that comes straight out of Cafe Du Monde in NOLA and had my first piping hot beignet. Dear God… Beignets aren’t as popular here in LA but you can find them at the Beignet Truck that’s traveling all over the valley, Glendale, DTLA and the Westside. Do it NOW.
So besides being delightfully engulfed by the beautiful smell of coffee and sugar, you and your gift recipients will have the smoothest skin ever after using this. Smooth like butta…. 😉
And, of course, you can’t forget to slap on a cute little label! Now tell me this isn’t Pinterest-worthy?!
So now, instead of freaking out because you totally forgot to get your great-aunt Sally a gift, run to your kitchen, grab whatever coffee you have + sugar + coconut oil (or olive oil works too!) and pretend like you totally had this planned out and it was your very own brilliant idea to make this for her. You’re welcome… and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
