scrub

Mother’s Day is almost here!! It is time to put something together that will bee amazing! Our suggestion is make a gift basket with honey, honey lotions, tea, chocolate, and something handmade.  At The Honey Cottage, we bee-lieve that all Mother’s deserve a day to feel like the Queen Bee! So pamper your mom by making these yummy honey scrubs to show her how much you love her!

Salt Scrub-

1 ½ cup of salt

½ a cup of olive oil or sunflower oil

13 drops of lavender essential oil

2 Tbsp. of orange blossom honey

Sugar Scrub-

1 ½ cup of sugar

½ a cup of olive oil or sunflower oil

13 drops of lavender essential oil

2 Tbsp. of orange blossom honey

Directions:

Take the ½ cup of oil and warm it up; do not let it get hot just warm enough for the honey to mix in. Next, take the honey and essential oil and mix them with the oil until combined. Lastly, add the salt or sugar into the oil mixture and mix until thoroughly mixed. Put the scrubs in a well sealed container or in a zip lock bag; the oil can leak out if not properly sealed.

Tips:There are so many ways to make these scrubs unique; you can use a different honey, essential oil, or oil. You can put flowers into the mix or use natural coloring to make it look pretty. I personally like using the honey sugar scrub on my face and honey salt scrub on my feet, but they can be used either way. These make amazing gifts!!

*Please bee careful to not get water in the scrubs because it is natural and will grow mold. E-mail Crystal@thehoneycottage.com if there are any questions.
