Homemade gifts are truly the most special, especially ones that seed your skin! Why not spend time this holiday season, crafting your own handmade scrub, with the help of Mamma Chia!

Need Need Need!
- 1 cup Organic Granulated White Sugar
- 1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil or Olive Oil
- 1 oz of Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds
- 12 ml Organic Cranberry Seed Essential Oil. You can order it here ( if you want to make other scents we recommend lavender or mandarin
- Mason jars or Bail jars
- For color: We used strawberry gelatin mix but food coloring, hibiscus powder, or any sort of natural tint used in baking will work
Get to it!
TIP: If using coconut oil make sure to melt on the stove top or in the microwave.
The sugar should be wet but not soupy. If too much coconut oil is used, the mixture will solidify once the coconut oil returns to room temperature.
TIP: If you are using olive oil skip the first two steps.
Combine sugar and oil, mix it up well, and divide into separate bowls. Add coloring and essential oil.
Add the chia seeds last and stir well!
Move the finished mixture into the jar, and you’re done!
