Coconut Lavender Body Scrub

Live Menstrual Phase

February. A month of snow, frigid air, and love. Wait, one of those things doesn’t belong! Whether Valentines Day for you means spending time with a loved one, going out, or staying in, I think we can all agree that a little self-love is necessary. This DIY coconut lavender body scrub is my new favorite way to pamper myself. And bonus, it makes a great gift as well! Hint hint.

It’s made with only 4 ingredients and in 1 container. Yes, you read that right. So easy! I made this batch in my Stasher Bag because it’s easy to mix, leaves zero mess, and stores perfectly. If the mixture hardens in the cold, you can easily break it down by massaging the bag. So what are you waiting for? Get to it.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Epsom salt crystals
  • 1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil (melted)
  • 12-15 drop lavender essential oil (or any scent)
  • 1 Tbsp. dried lavender

Make:

Add Epsom salt, dried lavender, coconut oil, and essential oil to a sandwich size stasher bag. Push out as much air as possible and zip. Massage the closed bag until everything is thoroughly incorporated.

Store:

Leave the bag zipped in the shower, on the sink, or pack it for travel!

Use:

Add a handful to baths, as a scrub in the shower, or on hands as an exfoliator. The magnesium from the Epsom salt acts as a muscle relaxant and the lavender oil lulls you into a nice calm, so it’s best used before bed!

Managing Stress + Anxiety
Depression. Stress. Anxiety. I thought that I had dealt with my fair share of those three words in high school, but I truly did not experience them until college; until I was diagnosed with a chronic disease. If you're suffering from any of these, my heart goes out to you. I understand, I really do. But what I want to write about is how to feel your best naturally. Everyone is completely different and unique, so please know that I value whatever route you decide to take for yourself. Self-care is literally the most important thing on the planet to me. I do not intend to treat, diagnose, or cure. These small steps are simply what helps me feel ...

The Long Story
Halfway through my freshman year of college, I became very ill. I was extremely nauseated every day, and couldn’t grasp what was making me feel so awful. If I ate, I was sick. If I didn’t eat, I was sick. After about a week I saw a doctor who believed I had a stomach ulcer and sent me home with some medication. After about a month of medication, nothing was working. I had just about every test done in the book. My upper endoscopy test was fine. My ultrasound on my gallbladder didn’t show signs of stones. Besides being slightly anemic, I didn’t have any abnormalities in my blood. I can’t even tell you how many times I was asked if I could be p ...

Rose Cacao Latte
This winter has been all about living that full-fat latte life! Is that a thing? Well if not, now it is. It's been way too cold for smoothies most mornings, but I've wanted to incorporate more supplements and herbs for immunity. In my mind, supplements are so difficult to remember if you're taking them in pill form. This is why I like incorporating them into my daily diet. This latte is packed full of nourishing fat from coconut butter for energy and fullness all morning long. My favorite part is that you can pre-pack it in a reusable Stasher Bag and take on the go. This makes it perfect for traveling or you can pre-pack it to make at ...
