I have dry, flaky skin.
Especially right now with all this crazy weather changing!
I did some research and of course the cure all popped up all over, Coconut Oil! DUH!
So I took it a step further and decided to make a nice scrub to also help exfoliate.
Who doesn't love a two-fer!!? (2 for one)
It's super easy to whip up real quick, plus with the holidays right around the corner, it's perfect for those
who like to make their gifts for others.
Did I mention it smells AMAZING!
Mix 1 cup of white sugar (I am sure you could use raw sugar if you choose to, but I didn't have any) with 1/2 cup Virgin Coconut Oil and mix together until it is well combined. It's best to use the coconut oil at room temperature, it's easier to work with (but you don't want it too liquefied either).
Put into a jar with lid if not using right away. I used a pint size mason jar, cause who doesn't love using mason jars for everything!
You can add any essential oils to it if you have any favorites. I opted not to because I love the smell of coconut. Also, I suggest using virgin coconut oil because it still has all the vitamins and nutrients unlike the pressed or refined coconut oil (which also doesn't have the coconut smell like the virgin oil does).
