The last few weeks, I’ve been busy working on my son’s Eagle Scout Court of Honor. Well, to be honest, it’s his Court of Honor along with 2 of his Troop friends…we are having a 3 Eagle celebration. Now, I’ve been running around like a crazy lady and am in desperate need of some pampering….but there’s just one problem. I’m short of time. So, I decided to whip up a batch of Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub to make my shower special and uplifting. It’s so easy to make. Really. If you don’t believe me, just check out my recipe!
Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub
Now, if you have never make any of your own health and beauty products before, sugar scrubs are a super easy project to start with. A lot of recipes for sugar scrubs call for a liquid oil, like almond or olive. However, I find that the sugar all sinks to the bottom and the oil floats on top. So, you have to stir it every time you use your wonderful, homemade sugar scrub.
This recipe uses coconut oil. This way, the sugar stays suspended in the oil and you don’t have to stir your scrub when you use it. Are you ready to gather your ingredients? Here you go.
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil (this will provide a wonderful coconut aroma to your scrub)
- Zest of one lime
- 20-25 drops of Lime Essential Oil
Now this is super simple. In fact, I’m almost embarrassed to say that the hardest part is done. Yup. All you do now is place all 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl, grab your beaters and mix until everything is combined thoroughly. Just like mixing up the sugar & butter when making a batch of cookies. It’s just that simple.
Once everything has been mixed together, place it in a wide mouth mason jar. That’s it! This recipe makes approximately 3 cups of coconut lime sugar scrub. Enough for you and a gift for a friend!
Now its off to my shower for my pampering session!
