DIY Warm Vanilla Brown Sugar & Coconut Body Scrub
Recipe by bath.body.diy
1 1/4 cups of brown or raw sugar
6-8 tablespoons of organic unrefined coconut oil
15-20 drops of vanilla essential oil (may be substituted with vanilla fragrance)
4 (4 oz) ball jelly jars
If your coconut oil is solid at room temperature, briefly warm just enough to aid in the melting the process. Then in a small bowl combine your coconut oil and brown sugar, blending well enough to eliminate any lumps. Then add your vanilla essential oil to the mixture drop by drop, being sure to blend mix after each addition. Once mixed, scrub should be placed in an airtight container, or jelly jar to make your gift look beautiful, and used within six months.
Apply your scrub to pre-moistened skin, being sure to massage it in using circular motions, then wash.
