Easy to make, nourishing sugar body scrub with coconut oil. Makes a great gift.
Prep Time: 10mins
2 glass jars (use small jars)
1 sheet white felt
1/2cup(120ml)melted coconut oil
20-30dropsorange essential oil
zest of one organic orange
Combine coconut oil with sugar in a bowl and mix until you get the texture of wet sand. Add essential oil, orange zest (if using) and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Stir until incorporated.
At this point add more cinnamon or oil, depending on your preference, if you want a darker or more fragrant scrub. Also add more coconut oil, about 2-4 tablespoons, if you want a scrub that looks more like a paste.
Spoon scrub into jars, decorate if desired and store in a cool and dark place (or just in your bathroom). Ideally use up within one month.
Feel free to use other types of essential oils or a combination of a few different scents.
For a more decadent scrub, you can add some Demerara or Turbinado sugar to the mix.
Don’t use this scrub on your face! Or any very sensitive area. It’s a great scrub to exfoliate with before you shave your legs, for example, but not something you want to rub over sensitive areas.
