Coconut Oil & Sugar Scrub
Simply grab a small jar, fill 3/4 full with Organic Sugar, then add melted Organic/Raw Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to cover the sugar and stir. Make sure the oil isn’t too hot, becasuse it will start to melt the sugar. When the mixture goes back to room temperature, the oil will stiffen, so you’ll need to run warm water over the jar before using it in the shower or bath. I had a reader on the Facebook page who said she added some Apricot Kernel Oil to keep it from firming up (I have SMART readers)! Sure enough, I tried this, and it worked quite well. So if you’d prefer to not warm it before using, try this method. This works just like a store bought sugar scrub, but there are no icky additives, and we know the coconut oil is terrific for your skin! Just be careful, because it is SLIPPERY in the shower!
Feel free to add a few drops of an essential oil, if you’d like a scent…I personally love to add peppermint oil or lavender. ENJOY!
