This hand scrub is so simple yet it works wonderfully! I have two lavender plants in my garden, so I wanted to try to make something with my plants. This scrub is great for dry skin and smells amazing. It also makes a great gift!


- 1/2 c. of Sugar (course sugar is better)

- 1/4 c. of Coconut Oil

- 1 Tbl. Sea Salt

- 2 tsp. Fresh or Dried Lavender buds

Materials Needed:

- A jar

- A small mixing bowl

- A spoon for mixing

Step 1: Put Ingredients in the Bowl

Slowly mix it all together, until it is well combined. If it is too runny for you, you can add more sugar.

Step 3: Put the Scrub in a Jar and Enjoy!

Last, put the scrub in a clean jar and enjoy! To use, take a dab of it and rub it all over your hands for 2 minutes or so. Afterwards your hands will be no longer so dry! You can also use this on your arms and legs to make them silky smooth. The longer you let this scrub sit, the more it will smell like lavender.

Thank you. :) I have a few lavender plants also. I made an infused oil with them, but had a few left over, this recipe was perfect for them. And SOO easy. Your photos are marvelous by the way.
