Gift Idea: Coconut Sugar Scrub & Free Jar Printable

 Hi everyone! Yesterday I spent some time getting teachers gifts all ready for our end of the school year party (we’re so excited we are getting the chance to have a party after our city flood)!  I always find it so hard to figure out what to give teachers…but then I remembered my Coconut Sugar Scrub.  I love this Coconut Sugar Scrub recipe so much that I just know our teachers will love it too! Honestly, I use this scrub almost every day!

I wanted to share this idea with you because it’s so simple which makes this a perfect last minute gift for the teachers, teachers aides, principals, or the bus drivers in your kids school lives!  All you need are 2 ingredients: Coconut Oil and Granulated Sugar and you’ve got a fantastic gift!  I also made some labels for you to print out and add to your jars!

Here is the recipe!

Coconut Sugar Scrub

Ingredients

  • granulated white sugar (just the plain stuff you already have the pantry)
  • Pure Unrefined Coconut Oil (I used Nutiva, it is organic, unrefined, pure coconut oil)

Instructions

  1. Use a 2:1 ratio of Sugar to Coconut Oil (I used 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup coconut oil)
  2. In a bowl mix the two together completely.
  3. Put into a container for use.

Notes

Tips!
– Sugar scrubs are best for exfoliating hands and feet.
– Pure coconut oil is solid at room temperature.
– Unrefined coconut oil smells out-of-this world amazing!

For our teachers gifts, I put the coconut scrub into 125 mL Mason jars.  Then I made these labels and printed them off for the tops of the jars.  Once I cut the labels out to fit, I added them under the jar rings, then I tied a pretty piece of ribbon around the jar to finish them all off.  So easy and so pretty!

Here is what the labels look like…you just have to cut the white circle out.

  1. Thanks for the great gift idea Jo-Anna. I am going to whip up a batch tonight to give to the teachers on Thursday and a jar for me. We must live in the same very flooded city! It puts alot of things into perspective.

    1. Hi Lisa!
      You are so welcome! I’m happy that you are able to make this recipe for your teachers (and you!)
      Crazy times in this city of ours isn’t it! I hope you are safe and dry!

  2. Where do you get the Jars From I’m looking around to find an affordable set. I want to make 30 for baby show favors. Every girl wants smooth moisturized skin

    1. Hi Stacy!
      I just found these jars at Walmart – I think they are the cheapest there. But I have also seen some pretty cute jars at different dollar stores! Good luck!

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually
    something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad
    for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try
    to get the hang of it!

  4. HI JOANN, THANKS FOR SHARING. I WAS WONDERING ABOUT THE GIFTED SCRUB FROM YOUR HUBBY. YOU MENTIONED IT TO BE WITH LEMON AS WELL I BELIEVE. DID YOU LEAVE OUT THE LEMON FOR ANY PARTICULAR REASON? JUST ASKING BECAUSE I WANT TO MAKE SOME FOR MY PARENT’S WHO ARE IN THEIR LATE 80’S. THEIR SKIN IS SO DRY ESPECIALLY MY DAD’S. HE LOVES LAYING OUT IN THE SUN. IT RELAXES HIM AND HE JUST LOVES TO FALL ASLEEP OUTDOORS IN THE SUNLIGHT. UNFORTUNATELY IT IS DRYING HIS SKIN AND I WANT TO FIND SOMETHING NATURAL FOR HIM, ALSO TO RELIEVE HIM OF ITCHING I GUESS FROM THE DRYNESS. HIS DR. SAID TO PUT VASELINE ON HIM. PLAIN VASELINE ON HIS BODY. I THINK HE’D BE SO SLIPPERY AND STAINING WHEREVER HE’D SIT PLUS IT MIGHT FEEL TOOOOO THICK. YUK. POOR DAD. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP . . .
