When Davida is in town I swear I become healthier. I magically start eating more vegetables, I put better things on my skin, and I make my own EVERYTHING. Seriously, D inspires me to be a like an all-natural Martha Stewart.
You guys- the vanilla bean in this is UNREAL. This sugar scrub smelled like lavender cake batter and I had to stop myself from eating it. Although- I wonder if you could eat it…VIDS? In this recipe we used both dried lavender (because it’s pretty) and lavender essential oils! Obviously we used our favorite brand, Aura Cacia. The base is organic cane sugar and coconut oil.
Literally all you do is mix everything together!
Obviously you have to create a cute little setup, photograph it, and post it on Instagram…because if you don’t…did you really make your own sugar scrub?
