Mother’s Day Lime and Coconut Body Scrub

Do you love the delicious mix of lime and coconut? Then this indulgent and therapeutic body scrub is for you!

I love making and receiving hand made gifts, whether it is body products, yummy treats or just a lovely little crafty project.  As the maker you get satisfaction that you have made something with love to give to someone else.  For the person receiving the gift it is so heart warming to know that someone has put in the time and effort to make something so lovely just for you.

As Mother’s Day is just around the corner it is the perfect time to spoil someone you love with a handmade gift.  This is a fun project for anyone of any age to do.  Why not invite a couple of friends over and make this scrub  and other gifts to share whilst chatting and enjoying each others company and sipping a glass or two of wine.

If you have kids you could get together for a fun afternoon activity and make scrubs for them to give to Mum, grandmothers and aunties.

The recipe is so simple to follow and the scrub is so delicious on your skin.  You will be sure to keep a sneaky pot or two for yourself.
