Instead of buying exfoliants with tons of chemicals and additives in them, make this 5 minute scrub that you can use on your body and face! You only need salt, sugar, fractionated (liquid) coconut oil & essential oils. For this particular recipe I used Lavender, Geranium, Rose & Roman Chamomile. Feel free to mix it up and use whatever soothing oils you like!
Combine 1/2 cup turbinado (raw) sugar & 1/2 cup fine sea salt in a bowl. Whisk together with a fork to remove any lumps.
Add your essential oils now. I did 5 drops lavender, 3 drops geranium, 3 drops roman chamomile, & 1 drop rose. You can do just lavender, or combine it with any other oil good for the skin. Whisk together to remove any clumps.
Now, add 6 tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking together after each tablespoon. This is to evenly combine the oil with the crystals. Liquid coconut oil is easier to work with than solid. If you only have solid, just soften it in the microwave, but make sure it isn’t hot or else it will melt the salt & sugar.
Put the mix into a jar & keep in the shower or next to the sink. Use at least twice a week as an exfoliant or body scrub. No need to wash yourself with soap afterwards. The coconut oil is good for your skin. Just towel dry afterwards! Enjoy your silky, soft skin.
