Spring is the time to get rid of clutter, get ready for graduations, proms and lots of birthdays. For some odd reason I know a lot of spring babies and they love lots of color. Spring is also a time to add color to your wardrobe and definitely the décor in your home, but it’s also a time to add some color to the gifts that you’re going to give out this year. With all the celebrations coming up you’re going to need some gifts to give away without breaking the bank.
Over the next few weeks we are going to be making a few festive beauty DIY’s that are all natural and only require a few ingredients. Today we are starting with a simple sweet grape body scrub. When making this scrub please only use 1-2 tsps. of drink mix, if you use the whole packet you will get a funky grey color and not a lovely purple color. I would suggest mixing .5 tsp. of mix to sugar and oil; if the color is not the purple you like add .5 tsp. more until you get your desired purple. Once you use this body scrub in the shower, you will know why I call it sweet grape. It smells so good you will want to eat it, but remember it’s for your skin.
Sweet Grape Body Scrub Recipe:
3 cups sugar
1-2 tsps. grape drink mix (I used kool aid)
2.5 cups oil (I used coconut)
Recipe Direction: In a medium bowl stir sugar and grape drink mix until combined (no more then 1 tsp. to start). Place oil into the medium bowl and mix until the oil has been incorporated into the sugar mixture. Once incorporated store in an air tight container.
Important Tip: If you have problems getting the Kool-Aid to change the sugar to bright purple. Add a small amount of violet icing color to the sugar and oil. Once you have the purple add the Kool-Aid!
