Let’s face it we all have dry, dead skin that we want to get rid of, but I hate spending money on expensive skin treatments filled with ingredients I’ve never heard of, so I decided to make my own. It was surprisingly easy and only took a few minutes to make. However, be careful not to use this scrub more than once a week or you could end up irritating your skin.
¼ cup Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, room temperature
½ cup sugar (I used white sugar, but you can use brown sugar)
1 tsp. peppermint extract (optional)
Glass Jar with Lid
1.Mix the coconut oil and sugar slowly until the mixture becomes thick and paste like.
2. Add 1 tsp. of peppermint extract and mix in.
3. You can now start using your body scrub. If you want to save it and use it later place it in a glass jar that has a lid, we used a baby food jar. You could also use an empty Kelapo jar.
I loved the way it made my skin feel while I was making it and after I started using it. The peppermint also made my bathroom smell amazing. I was event thinking about buying mason jars and making these homemade scrubs for holiday gifts! Remember to store this at room temperature above 76* F, so that the coconut oil does not solidify.
