Make Your Own- Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub Recipe

Coconut oil sugar scrub recipe! So simple.

Yes. A while ago I purchased a large jar of coconut oil for the sole purpose of healing my chapped winter lips (a rumor Jen had heard and let me in on). But, if I was going to use this for my lips alone, it would last me 10 lifetimes. After surfing around I found out that coconut oil has a TON of amazing uses, so I decided that I would try out some! The first thing I decided to do was make a coconut oil sugar body scrub.

This one… wow. All that I can say is my skin is freaktastically soft and smooth, not to mention that it smells heavenly. Extra virgin coconut oil is a semi-solid white substance, with a consistency similar to margarine. I mixed the sugar with room temperature EVCO and it mixed like a dream. Once you actually start to use the scrub, it dissolves into its lovely oiliness. Use the scrub all over. It’s lush.

I can’t wait to try out my coconut oil on my hair! I picked up a jar at Trader Joes for about $5.99. You can do SO much with this stuff you guys! Cook, heal, beautify. Plus if you are a coconut lover like me, you will be soooo happy with the scent, it’s faint and yummy. I used an old scrub jar to store my scrub and am keeping it right in my shower!

So simple, and I feel happy to have made it myself with natural ingredients. A good scrub is so important, especially when we are getting rid of the dry winter skin and prepping for warmer weather!

Let me know if you try this! I’m in LOVE.

  15. Thanks for the new stuff you have disclosed in your text.
    One thing I’d really like to reply to is that FSBO human relationships are built after some time. By releasing yourself to owners the first end of the week their FSBO can be announced, prior to a masses start calling on Monday, you create a good association. By giving them instruments, educational resources, free records, and forms, you become the ally. Through a personal interest in them and also their scenario, you make a solid link that, on most occasions, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with a representative they know in addition to trust preferably you.

  18. Great idea! I don’t like to use sugar in my scrubs (I have ant problems at the house) so I use Epsom salt. Same results! Also put in a little lime oil/rind for am AMAZING smell :)

  19. I’m new to all of this, I want to make my own; however, when I found coconut oil it was in the cooking section of the store and states on the bottle perfect choice for cooking. Is this the same oil to use in making a sugar scrub? Thanks for your help. Love your posts.
