Christmas Movie List

Scott and I have our Christmas movie list written out, but we haven’t watched a single one yet! It’s a little sad. I’m wanting to get some in this week (esp since it is the week of Christmas). But we did realize a couple of weeks ago, that our Christmas movie DVD collection is a little slim – we would always borrow movies from our siblings. But I’m sure we can find the ones we are missing on Netflix or On Demand or somewhere.

So here is what is on our list.

DIY Christmas Sugar Scrub


We had our office Christmas party this week and I really wanted to bring a hostess gift. I didn’t have a ton of money to spend so I knew I was going to go the DIY route. I had just recently watched an on-line class about using Young Living Essential Oils for DIY gifts. I took to Pinterest and found a great ‘Wake-Up Lemon Body Sugar Scrub” (But for the life of me I can’t find it now!)

I will tell you Lemon is my FAVORITE YL EO smell! The thought of starting my morning with a citrus smelling sugar scrub almost makes me want to jump out of bed on these colds morning-Almost. I thought about doing a lemon sugar scrub, but at the last minute I opted to make a Christmas Peppermint Scrub. It smelt so good, I wish I would have doubled it to keep some for myself!

Materials Needed:
* Glass bowl
* Spoon
* 1 1/2 cup Sugar (I used regular white sugar)
* 1/4-1/2 cup Coconut Oil
* Essential Oil (Christmas Spirit would be a great one to use)
* Mason Jar
* Gift Decor (optional-if giving as a gift)

1) In a glass bowl mix in sugar and coconut oil and mix well. (Note: the site I was reading said to use 1/4 cup coconut oil. This wasn’t enough to hold onto the sugar well, so I kept adding coconut oil in. I probably ended up with just under 1/2 cup)
2) Add in essential oils. Depending on which oil you are using will determine how many drops you use. I used about 20-25 drops of peppermint.
3) Spoon mixture into a mason jar.
4) If giving as a gift decorate.

Have fun and Enjoy!
