I truly look forward to this time of the year because it’s a season for renewal and that applies to your beauty regimen too. Wouldn’t you agree that it’s time to scrub away that dull, winter skin? I thought so.
This coconut oil sugar scrub recipe is my “go to” exfoliant these days. It has lavender essential oil for calming and relaxation, raw honey for moisture, and the amazing benefits of using coconut oil on your skin is, well, you just have to try it!
Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub with Lavender
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 Tablespoons raw honey
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
25 drops lavender essential oil
1. Combine sugar, coconut oil (room temperature), honey, and rosemary in a medium bowl.
2. Add lavender essential oil and stir.
3. Spoon the sugar scrub into a storage container.
The coconut oil scrub works best when applied in the shower, after spending a few minutes under a warm rinse to open your pores. Massage the scrub all over, beginning at the feet and working your way upward. Let the scrub sit for 5 minutes and rinse. Lock in moisture with a cool rinse. Enjoy your glow!
