Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub {homemade gift idea}

I’ve made a ton of sugar scrubs, but this Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub just became my favorite because it only uses FOUR ingredients, and it smells so good.  All you need is coconut oil, sugar, lime essential oil, and a lime to make the scrub.  I adore that sugar scrubs are easy to make, package adorably and are good for your skin!  Homemade scrubs are one of the best gifts ever!  They are my new latest craze {as you know} and after the recent success of my Lemon Sugar Scrub for Mother’s Day gifts, and my Coffee Sugar Scrub for Teacher Appreciation I decided to go all out and try 6 more fruity sugar scrubs!  So, here’s an easy-peasy, coconut sugar scrub recipe (with FREE printable tag) that’s perfect for gift giving!

This is one of the easiest sugar scrub recipes I’ve made.  It’s also the least oily because it uses coconut oil rather than olive oil, smells incredible and is just plain fabulous.  I love that sugar scrubs can be used on the hands, feet and body.  I like to use sugar scrubs in the shower because they are such great exfoliators and the hot water dissolves the sugar crystals before they can be too abrasive.

Add Printable and Decorate Jar

Once you’ve put the Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub in your jar (s), embellish them as you’d like and then print out the free tags found below to either put on the lid of the jar or use as a gift tag.  To embellish my jars, I just wrapped a piece of bakers twine around the rim. The “Coconut Sugar Scrub” tag can be downloaded for free below!  The sugar scrub was super easy to make and the whole project took me a total of 20 minutes including slapping on the printable!  It’s THAT easy.

The Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub Label comes in two sizes.  A smaller circle for a regular sized jar (I like to use a 4 oz. jar) or a larger circle for wide mouth jar.
