Suffering from winter itch like me? This DIY brown sugar, walnut, and green tea body scrub that is dripping in coconut oil was just what I needed to stop clawing at my legs and get some rest at night. Whip it up just before you plan to use it. I like to use scrubs in the shower so the particles go down the drain, but be careful, the oil makes it slippery! I recommend using this one before you shave at night and follow-up with a thick lotion before bed for extra moisture.

Body Benefits of each ingredient:

  • walnuts- natural oils help psoriasis, prevents wrinkles, rich moisturizer and exfoliation
  • brown sugar- gentle exfoliation
  • coconut oil- rich moisturizer and binding ingredient
  • green tea-antioxident and detoxify

I ground my walnuts in my coffee grinder, you could also use a food processor. Note that the high oil content will basically start to form a  nut butter. I just stopped when it was getting wet and pulled out the big pieces so I had more of an exfoliator, but you can take it as far as you want. This scrub has a very nutty smell, you could add some scented oil like peppermint to change it up a bit if you find it offensive. But I found the scent is gone after I applied lotion anyway!

Let me know if you have any questions on this one! Enjoy.

  4. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the web will
    be much more useful than ever before.
