DIY: Hands And Body Sugar Scrub

I think most of us, if not all, love soft and smooth skin. A very easy way to achieve this is by regular exfolation, since is going to be regular, it better be a gentle one.
And is such a nice thing to make our own scrub! they're so easy to make at home, with few (or more) ingredients.
I poured in my jar brown sugar, a bit of fine white sugar, in order to have different particle sizes for a better performance, then added bits of fresh lavender from my garden and finally poured on top a nice organic coconut oil, stir with a knife and adjust oil quantity if the mixture is dry.
Of course you can make your own variations: use salt instead of sugar or both, olive oil or another nice oil good for the skin.
I am ready to make one with grated orange peel and another with red rose petals, also from my garden.
