What You Need

1 cup sugar

1 cup coconut oil

1 cup freeze dried strawberries

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Step by Step

1. Place your freeze dried strawberries in a plastic bag, and use a rolling pin to crush the pieces up until they are extremely fine (think powder).

2. In a small bowl add your crushed freeze dried strawberries and sugar and mix together (for a “coarser” scrub you could substitute the regular sugar for raw sugar, which is a bit more coarse than the regular sugar that you commonly use in the kitchen).

3. Lastly, add in your vanilla and coconut oil until fully incorporated. Spoon into small mason jars or mini cream jars and add a cute little tag for a quick and easy gift!
