Everyone is talking about the miracle that is coconut oil – you can cook with it, use it as a conditioner, make lotions and lip balms out of it. Really, what can’t you do with coconut oil? Well, I just bought a huge jar of it the other day and made this moisturizing sugar scrub since my skin is still so dry and cracked from the winter. This exfoliant hydrates your skin, leaving you feeling soft AND smelling good. You can use any essential oil of your choice, or just a tablespoon of lemon juice for a nice scent. Use in the shower or bath and rub all over – it is especially good for hands and feet!

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil at room temperature (I used Nutiva)
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 15-20 drops of essential oil (I used lavender)

    Just throw all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and thoroughly combine. I store my sugar scrub in a mason jar and use at most 1 tablespoon each time I exfoliate, as coconut oil is very thick and a little bit goes a long way. Enjoy your smooth and moisturized skin!
