Simply Pampered Spa Day #1, Free Pattern!

It’s time to pamper yourself here at the Hooked Haberdasher! Today begins a week’s worth of posts for the “Simply Pampered Spa Day” set to include free crochet patterns and recipes for homemade spa goodies. By the end of the week, you will have DIY instructions for everything you need to make, use and assemble a lovely “Simply Pampered Spa Day” basket full of spa goodies. Perfect to keep and gift – because we all need a bit of pampering, right?!?

Today we’ll start off with the first essentials in the set – the Whipped Coconut Oil & Sugar Scrub recipe AND the Simply Pampered Scrubby Crochet Pattern! I purchased the ingredients at my local grocery store, along with a children’s set of primary colored spoons πŸ™‚ The yarns, jars and ‘Ocean Breeze” essential oil were purchased at my local craft store.

WHIPPED COCONUT OIL & SUGAR SCRUB RECIPE

    • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
    • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
    • 10 drops Essential Oil (+/-) – optional

Simply Pampered Spa Day - sugar scrub
Using a clean dry bowl and a fork, add 1/2 c of solid coconut oil and lightly cream the coconut oil with your fork. Slowly add 3/4 c granulated sugar, using your fork to thoroughly combine your coconut oil and sugar, but not too much – you don’t want your oil to melt. As an option add approximately 10 drops of essential oil for fragrance; mix and fluff once more using your fork. Spoon your sugar scrub into a nice glass airtight container. To use, place a small spoonful into the palm of your hand and apply to the area you would like to scrub – use your scrubby to cleanse and exfoliate the area. Lightly rinse with water any leftover sugar from the area, leaving the oil to moisturize the skin. I use a small amount of Dawn dish washing liquid and hot water to handwash my scrubby, rinsing thoroughly and set aside to air dry for the next use.

If you would be so kind as to help this designer out (me πŸ™‚ ) and add this pattern to your favorites and queues on Ravelry, I would be most humbly grateful for your kindness! Oh, and adding the image below to Pinterest would really be kind, too! πŸ™‚

About thehookedhaberdasher

I was blessed with two dear Grandmothers who were wonderfully gifted and loved all the arts of handcrafting. At their knee, a wee little blonde girl learned the fine art of crochet under their wise and talented tutelage. Now that little girl has grown up and enjoys a lifestyle that affords me the time to put hooks, yummy yarns and fibers back into my hands, returning to the joy and fun of the art of handcrafted crochet. I am awed by the talent and creative patterns of modern new designers, but still enjoy the beauty of vintage patterns as well. My mind and hands are never idle, designing and handcrafting stylishly beautiful, practical, cozy, comfy, sweet and cute wearables and loveables for old and young alike. As a very detail oriented artist, I design and crochet with love, embracing the virtues bequested to me by those two beautiful Grandmothers.

  2. I am looking forward to this as I am an independent Distributor for Young Living Essential oils and I am just getting back into making and creating handmade products which I use to do up until my early 30’s. I am now in my mid 50’s and have suddenly had an urge to make beautiful handmade items for sale and of course family and friends. Thank you for your 1st of many blog posts.

      Essential oils is a “category” of oils, Kathy, that come in many different fragrances. At your local craft store, they would most likely be in the soap or candle making aisles. The fragrance I chose for the two sets I made was “ocean breeze” found at my LCS.

  4. What alternatives to coconut oil would you recommend? I would love to make some of the scrub for myself,but I can’t stand the smell of coconut.

      Audrey, I find the organic coconut oil to be nearly odorless; however, other recipes call for grape seed or peanut oils. Olive oil is the only one they say not to use because the sugar dissolves in the properties of olive oil. HTH β™₯
