Lavender Scrub

It is hard to believe how time flies. It seems like only yesterday I was bringing my first born son home from the hospital. Now, he has been married almost 2 months now. He married his High School Sweetheart on August 29th. It was a simple ceremony but, oh so beautiful. I do have to admit I cried. I think I was good and hid it well! ;) Making the powerpoint for the beginning of the ceremony was so hard. Just looking at all those pictures of him growing up made me realize how fast time really does fly. I do wish them both a long and happy life together. My prayer for them is to always keep God first!!
For the bridal shower, she made little jars of honey for the guest to take home. The honey was from my son's beehive that he has. I made little jars of lavender scrub for the guests. I used dried lavender buds in this recipe but, you can omit them if you want to.

Lavender Scrub

1 Cup White Sugar

2 TBSP dried lavender buds

8 to 10 drops lavender essential oil

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

2-4 TBSP olive oil

If you are using lavender buds, grind them with a mortar and pestle or in a coffee grinder. In a bowl, combine the sugar and ground lavender buds. Next, add the oils and stir to combine. Then, add the essential oil and stir. Place into a jar and label.
