Following is a fun Gift in a Jar Idea and guest post by Nicole at Wonky Wonderful… enjoy!!

Hi There! Today I am sharing my favorite type of project . . . Quick, Simple and Inexpensive. This Coconut-Salt Foot/Body scrub is absolutely luxurious and is the perfect homemade gift. Or, feel free to make this for yourself. After all, you deserve to be pampered too!

The great thing about making your own foot and body scrub is that you control the ingredients.  You can choose to make a salt or sugar scrub.  Use coconut or olive oil and whatever fragrance you like.

Just mix course salt (or sugar) with the oil at a 2:1 ratio.  For example, I mixed 1 cup salt with 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup vitamin E oil.  If you are only using one type of oil, mix 1/2 cup oil with 1 cup salt.  Then add 3-4 drops of fragrant essential oil and stir it up.

*Note: Coconut Oil does become solid when it is cold (the scrub is still effective).  Heat the jar in warm water to return the coconut oil to liquid form.

Put the scrub into a jar and gussy it up with ribbon and a label.  That’s it, you now have a lovely homemade gift for friends and family!

Store bought scrubs can cost ten to twenty dollars or more.  Depending on the ingredients you choose, this scrub ends up costing approximately two to three bucks!  Doesn’t get much more Frugal than that.

Have A Beautiful Day!

    For all the questions regarding the salt: I use Coarse Sea Salt that can be found in the salt/spice section of the grocery store. I bought the Morton brand coarse sea salt for under 2 bucks. Hope that helps :)

    Love this idea! My cousin has been hinting that she would love something like this and with only a few days until Christmas with even fewer dollars in the bank, I think it’s the perfect gift! Question: Where did you find the little spoons?? They are too cute! Also, how much did the jars cost?

    Does anyone know what the shelflife is of these? How far in advance can I start making for the Christmas season?

    • Melissa says

      Provided after mixing and using this you don’t plan to eat it it should have an exceptionally long shelf life! Salt and coconut oil store well for years without any problems so unless you are making a gallon for yourself you should have no trouble using up a batch of this in time!
      I hope that helps you!
