I must say, of all the cyber places you could have ended up, i’m certainly glad you chose to be here. Viewing my site is best accompanied by your choice of beverage; i recommend sweet tea, hazelnut macchiato, or prosecco. That, and 80's music, preferably from the breakfast club soundtrack.

Love is Sweet

October 22, 2014

There are so many people in this industry who have taken the time to pour their knowledge and hearts into me and my business, so in the Spring I decided I wanted to send a special “Thank You” to some of these people. I wanted this to be a “homemade with love kind of project.”

Enter made from scratch sugar scrubs! Nikki Santerre Photography_Virginia Fine Art Wedding Photographer_Heart Love Always_Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrubs_0001The ones I sent in the packages were Coconut Lime, but when Alexandra asked me to share the recipe on her blog, we went with Pumpkin Spice to make it a little more seasonally appropriate.

Here are the recipes if you’d like to try them out at home. They make great teacher appreciation gifts, hostess gifts, or would definitely come in handy around the holidays since they are quickly approaching!

  • 1 cup coconut oil (I recommend Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 drops cinnamon essential oil (optional)

For the coconut recipe, substitute brown sugar for white granulated, eliminate the pumpkin pie spice, and add lime essential oil.
