SELF-LOVE: Lavender sugar scrub

Depending on what essential oils you have on hand, it can be any scent. Eucalyptus, orange, rosemary 😍
:::
Ingredients:
🔸️ grapeseed oil 🍇
🔸️sugar 🍚
🔸️essential oil 👃
🔸️jar/container
🔸️fresh lavender for wrapping
🔸️twine
🔸️label
:::
Good ratio is 3:1, so depending on the size jar you are using you could use 1 cup sugar to 1/3 cup oil, 3 cups sugar to 1 cup oil.
:::
➡️ 1. Go ahead and mix your oil and sugar in a bowl together, and stir thoroughly.
➡️ 2.Once it becomes a slushy consistency, add your drops of essential oil. For a small container best to use 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup oil, and about 8-10 drops of essential oil. You’ll know it’s the right amount when you mix it through and you can smell the fragrance nice and strong 😍
➡️ 3. Next take your fresh lavender and wrap twine around the bottom and then secure with a bow. You can label the top as well if you choose 🤗

SELF-LOVE: Homemade Face Lotion 🧖‍♀️

What you will Need:
🔸️3 1/2 Tablespoon organic Shea butter
🔸️2 Tablespoons Jojoba oil
🔸️3 Tablespoons of Aloe Leaf Juice
🔸️1 Teaspoon vitamin E oil
🔸️4 drops lavender essential oil of choice
🔸️A pint sized mason jar
🔸️A small glass jar to store your lotion
:::
Instructions:
➡️Add the Shea butter and Jojoba oil to a pint sized mason jar 
➡️Place a saucepan on the stove and add a cup of water to it-turn on the heat to medium high
➡️Place the mason jar in the saucepan and stir-slowly melting the Shea butter with the jojoba oil.
➡️Once the Shea butter and jojoba oil is completely melted add the aloe juice to the mason jar-(the aloe should be luke warm)
➡️With a hand held immersion blender or food processor -whip the product for at least 5 minutes
➡️Add in your essential oil and pour into a small jar
➡️Store you face lotion in a sealed glass far and use within 3 months
:::
* This WILL NOT work if you swap out the jojoba oil for another type of oil. Jojoba is actually a wax and it is what helps emulsify the aloe water into the rest of the ingredients. Make sure you whip the product well so that the liquid completely blends into jojoba and shea butter.
