Lemon Coconut Body Scrub

I have been making this body scrub for a long time now so I thought it would be a great one to share.

I really try to stick to natural skin care products as much as possible including moisturizers, scrubs and deodorant.  I just don’t see a point in using commercial products if you can make something just as luxurious and yummy at home! (Not to mention the lower cost!)

I must be really wanting summer because one sniff of this and there I am, toes in the sand, drink in my hand …..   you know where I’m going.

So this recipe is super easy:

1 cup white sugar

1/4 cup melted virgin coconut oil

3-4 drops lemon essential oil

Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl with a spoon.  The consistency will look like snow.  Kind of ironic no?

Spoon into a jar with a lid to store.

You can scrub on to dry skin and then rinse, or scrub on after your normal shower routine and rinse off to be left smelling yummy and feeling smooth! You won’t even need a moisturizer afterwards.

Keep water out of the jar as much as possible to keep the scrub fresh. (You could use a little scoop instead of wet hands)

If I had some of my lavender from the garden I would totally add that to this scrub as well!  We’ll see what other blends I come up with this year…….

Note: Be sure to wash the tub after so as not to send the next person flying when they have a shower (it can make it a tad bit slippery!)
