I have recently become slightly obsessed with coconut oil. It’s a great moisturizer, you can cook with it, and if you put some in water with limes in a small pot over low heat, you can make your house smell like the tropics.
After seeing this concoction on Pinterest a million times, I finally decided to make it. I put mine in a little Gladware thing so I can keep it in the shower, but you could also put some in a glass jar and give it as a gift.
Coconut Sugar Scrub
- coconut oil (solid, in a jar)
- white sugar
- a few drops of essential oil, if desired (I used lavender)
You can scale this recipe to make however much you want. Microwave some of the coconut oil so it’s kind of soft (do this 10 seconds at a time), then transfer to a small bowl. Mix sugar in a little bit at a time until it reaches the consistency of thick batter. Add the essential oil, if using, and stir in. Plop this into jars, if you want, or a little plastic thing for the shower. Use instead of body wash/lotion or shaving cream.
