  1. How do you print the tags

  2. Mary Flesch says:

    I wanted to use what I had on hand, so I added pure vanilla extract. Smelled amazing with the lime zest!

  3. Can i use olive oil instead of coconut oil?

  4. Michelle Ng says:

    What kind/scent would you recommend for this?

  5. Michelle Ng says:

    What kind/scent of essential oil would you recommend with this?

  6. When making sugar scrub does it matter if I use coconut oil fractionated or not. Just melt it before and combine? What’s the difference in the scrub texture? Thanks.

  7. I’m going to be giving this a try I love a great Sugar scrub!!

  8. How many 8 oz mason jars does the recipe make? I need to make a large amount for a bridal shower.

    • It makes about a cup, so one 8 oz jar packed pretty full. If you don’t pack it down, you could probably fill one and a half jars with one recipe.

  9. Holly Boisvert says:

    Just curious, does the coconut oil not harden back?

  10. What brand of lime essential oil did you use?…..

    • I used Young Living brand. I’ve also tried Doterra with good results. I would guess that any high quality, pure essential oil would work. 🙂

  11. I’ve never made a sugar scrub before, but I may need to try, because I love lime!!

  12. This is something I totally want to make. I have all the ingredients- Hoot Hoot! 🙂
