Mother’s Day gift

I was waiting in hopes that I would give this to my mom before she received my post via email on what she is getting but alas that seems to not be in the cards.

Ever since I saw this on Pinterest I knew I had to make it. I actually made a combination of the above and this one

Basically I scooped out some coconut oil and put it in my handy Kitchen Aid Mixer and whipped it until it was nice and fluffy. I then added in some sugar and some lemon zest. and whipped it some more. It will make a lovely scrub and it is delicious. I’m not going to lie I did lick the beater. I did use some extra on my hands (the actual intended purpose) and they look lovely and feel soft.

So mom Happy’s Mothers Day! I love you more then I will ever be able to express. I am so lucky and proud to be your daughter and so grateful for the childhood and life you gave me.  I hope this scrub comes in handy after some good fun in the garden.
