coconut brown sugar body scrub

coconut_brown_sugar_body_scrub_1Much like Shan I have enjoyed using coconut oil as a moisturizer for several months now.  It wasn’t until recently I discovered how fantastic of a body scrub it makes when mixed with brown sugar and a little sea salt.  Who doesn’t love the feel of silky smooth skin?  This gives you that wonderful sensation while being 100% all natural (and insanely easy to make).

coconut_brown_sugar_body_scrub_2Simply mix:

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

Store in a pretty container with a wide opening.  Simply rub on skin and rinse.  An excellent way to exfoliate skin before shaving or applying self tanner.

coconut_brown_sugar_body_scrub_4I used this 3 hours ago and my skin still feels wonderful.  If you are a body scrub addict like myself this is a must try.  Happy scrubbing!

    I made this today and love it! I think it’s brilliant to use both sugar and salt because they are two different textures. And, a little goes a long way because it doesn’t dissolve in your wet hands like several store-bought scrubs do. Thanks, Brandy!
