DIY Lavender Basil Scrub

I'm a firm believer in taking a hot bath, especially if it is accompanied with a glass of wine or takes place in the afternoon. I usually just soak until I'm sweating, but I recently tried this DIY body scrub that I love.  

There isn't really a recipe, as it's mostly up to your personal preferences. All you need is sugar, coconut oil, lavender oil, and dried basil. I used about two cups of sugar, 1/4 cup of coconut oil, a tablespoon of lavender oil, and a few sprinkles of basil. The basil doesn't really serve a function besides smelling delicious, just so you know. I wanted a more grainy texture so that it could be used as an exfoliator, but you could easily add less sugar for a softer mix. The coconut oil makes your skin so silky smooth and soft and the lavender oil makes it smell delicious. 

What I love about this is that you can add or take away just about anything - throw some brown sugar in there for a prettier look, add orange oil to help wake you up in the shower in the morning...whatever you like! 

It's also a really funny DIY gift! I picked up this jar from Hobby Lobby, but you could probably find one at any craft store, or just use one in your cabinet.

    My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.
