It’s four days before Christmas, and everyone is stirring because, damn, this time of year can be stressful. Anyone else scrambling for last-minute gift ideas? A homemade holiday gift can be a simple yet thoughtful gesture that anyone on your gift list can appreciate and benefit from.

This all-natural body scrub is such a treat (literally, you can eat this stuff) and is super nourishing for skin, especially this time of year. Coconut oil is so beneficial not only when consumed but also for skin health as it is said to prevent wrinkles and is known to keep skin supple and hydrated. The cacao is also invigorating, leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed. Scrubs help promote circulation and keep the lymphatic system in tiptop shape and because our lymphatic system works in conjunction with our immune system, you could even say that this body scrub will aid to stave off colds and flus.

If you give this as a gift this year, don’t forget to #treatyoself, too.

You Will Need…

  • 125ml mason jars
  • 1/3 cup soft dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons pure cacao powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried cinnamon
  • 10 drops orange essential oil (available at most health stores)
  • twine or ribbon to wrap

What To Do…

1. Mix your ingredients in a bowl until fully combined, the scrub will darken and take on a paste-like consistency

2. Place scrub in jar and wrap with twine or ribbon for a finishing touch

3. Best applied to the body in a circular motion, used right before or during a shower
