vanilla sugar hand scrub {back to school teacher gift}

A couple of weeks ago during our family vacay to Tybee Island {pics coming soon!}, I fell in love with the hand scrub at one of the local restaurants. But it was pricey and I knew it wouldn't work with my budget for back to school gifts. So as soon as we got home, I started experimenting with different recipes and ingredients and finally came up with a winner!
Even better, it's made with all wholesome ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry!! So what are you waiting for??! Put on a cute apron and let's get started!

Vanilla Sugar Hand Scrub
{fills 3 half-pint (8 oz.) mason jars with a little to spare!} 
1   1/2 cups light brown sugar
8 tablespoons coconut oil
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1. Mix all ingredients together until smooth and
    coconut oil has dissolved completely.
2. Resist the urge to taste it because it smells so
3. Store in an airtight container.

Now go treat yourself for all your hard work { one has to know how easy it really was!} by using the little extra on yourself! I like to scoop out a little dollop, scrub for 1 minute, rinse with water and pat dry. Your hands will smell soooo good and feel soooo soft!
And if you're feeling fancy, spray paint the metal rings like I did and use a little fabric scrap or pretty paper to cover the circle lid. Add a little ribbon or baker's twine, a cute tag, and if you have it, a little wooden spoon for scooping and voila! You just made a perfect little gift for teachers, neighbors, girlfriends, hostesses or whoever needs a little extra I'm-thinking-of-you.
Now excuse me while I go back to being in denial that the littles start school in 1 week! *sob*
