How to make a sugar scrub

Whether your mum’s an adrenalin junkie who needs to unwind after a long day trekking across the British countryside, or simply deserves to put her feet up and relax, this sugar scrub should do the trick.


What you’ll need

110g granulated sugar

85g brown sugar

Two tablespoons coconut oil, melted

One tablespoon vanilla extract (or of your choice)

What to do

1. Simply mix all the ingredients thoroughly.

2. Transfer to a jar with an airtight lid. Store in a cool, dry place.

To use: Apply to wet skin in the shower, and rub in a circular motion, rinse away, dry skin by patting with a towel.

Please note: Do take care as coconut oil could leave your tub or shower slippery. Rinse well with hot water and use a towel if needed to absorb any remaining oil.

You could present this to your mum in a traditional airtight kilner jar tied with a nice ribbon in her favourite colour.
