With cooler weather approaching, I decided it was time to make another batch of my brown sugar scrub. I love this scrub because it’s easy to make, free of dyes and perfumes (and other harmful cosmetic chemicals), and both exfoliates and moisturizes. It’s also a great way to eliminate the polluting plastic beads in most commercial scrubs. Plus it smells great and leaves your skin very soft.
- 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- dash of vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients in a sealable container. I use a small glass canning jar, but you could use a plastic container. If the coconut oil is solidified, just soak the sealed jar in a bowl of hot water until it melts. Don’t worry if it solidifies in the scrub, the warmth of your hands will melt it.
To use, rub a small amout of the scrub on your feet, body, hands or face. Be careful to avoid your eyes. Rinse with warm water.
I don’t have a picture because it’s kind of ugly… but it works great.
