  1. DIY Christmas Coffee Scrub

    December 2, 2015 by Melanie Faris


    For those who don’t know, my newest obsession is most definitely essential oils. I started out using cheaper brands, because who doesn’t want to save some $$?!  But after much research, I have discovered not all essential oils are created equal. I thought I was doing no harm using any old bottle of essential oil – besides, they were labelled “pure”…little did I know, most oils are FAR from pure, even though they claim to be 100% essential oil. Don’t go there girlfriend!

    I won’t get into the great debate of essential oils in this post, however, I DO want to mention my essential oils of choice – Young Living. This is the brand I trust in my home, for my baby, and on my body. Period. They are pure therapeutic grade oils. 100% goodness in a little bottle that is a piece of Heaven on earth. One smell and you will be convinced.

    With the Christmas season upon us, I wanted to do a post for all of my DIY fans! Woohoo! This is a cheap and LOVED Christmas gift that is sooooo easy to make. Go buy yourself some little mason jars and ribbon, and your cute little jar is ready to be filled with awesomeness. Your skin will thank you – Trust me! And so will the person you are gifting this to…if you don’t keep it for yourself ;).


    Step 1. Grab a bowl

    Step 2. Mix everything in it (see pic above)

    Step 3. Package it up & give it away

    Seriously. It’s that easy! Now go do it 😉


    I keep one of these jars in my shower so I can scrub away at my trouble areas. I swear my skin is the smoothest, silkiest and nicest it has ever been after my showers. I love this mixture. Ps. You can try this scrub with peppermint or citrus oils. They all smell wonderful!

    Have a Merry Christmas!!
