Citrus Coconut Sugar Scrub

I’ve been hooked on sugar scrubs since I made my my first sugar scrub (Vanilla Brown Sugar) last fall. When I stumbled across this Citrus Coconut Sugar Scrub, I thought it would be perfect for summer. This scrub uses:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  •  TBSP shredded coconut
  • 6-8 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
  • Juice of 1 lime

The instructions say to melt the Coconut oil in microwave..But I don’t have a microwave, so I let mine melt in the sun (since it was SUPER hot out today). Once it was melted, I mixed it with the sugar, until the oil was fully incorporated. I then added the coconut and the Lime Oil. This recipe makes about one cup of scrub.

I am absolutely hooked on coconut oil now. My skin felt soooo soft after I used this scrub, and it smells like tropical paradise 😀 I recently started swimming again, and this scrub is the only thing that can rejuvenate my skin after all that chlorine.
