Minions bath scrub

I have several adult friends who ADORE the Minions as much or more than their children! So, for any of you out there who love the Minions AND enjoy a nice, warm, relaxing bath, here is a recipe for Minions Bath Scrub that you can easily make at home. It’s a fun activity you could let older children help you make – also an interactive Home Economics/Consumer Sciences home school activity! At just 5 ingredients, that you can buy in bulk to save money and stretch, it’s also super affordable, and would make a fabulous Homemade DIY Gift for a Minions fan on your holiday gift list!

I have several friends who’ve been encouraging me to try out coconut oil, sharing how great it can be to give your skin a nice little boost.

I’ve included links to each product at Amazon (Disclosure: I’m an affiliate, they pay a few cents if you make a purchase after clicking a link), so you can easily find each ingredient, see an example of what the packages/brands look like, etc. Of course, you can use any brand of your choice, these are just affordable examples I found.
