I found this great recipe for sugar scrub. This is really simple and so easy to make. In just five minutes, you’ll create an all-natural exfoliant and moisturizer for dry skin. It is gentle enough for chapped lips.
Coconut Sugar Scrub
1 tablespoon of coconut oil (olive oil works too)
1 tablespoon of honey
3 tablespoons of sugar
(Optional: a few drops of vanilla extract)
+ a small jar
Mix the coconut oil and honey until they are fully combined. Then add the sugar and stir until the mixture is thick and gritty. I added sugar incrementally until the consistency seemed just right, but in general, I’d recommend around 3 parts sugar to 2 parts coconut oil + honey. At this point, you can also add a few drops of vanilla extract to make the scrub smell even more delicious. Then transfer the mixture to your jar. The proportions above are generous; save what doesn’t fit in your jar in the refrigerator. And speaking of refrigerators, coconut oil solidifies at cooler temperatures, so if that happens, just stick the jar in a bowl of very warm water. It will regain its original consistency.
