This is the most delectable and luxurious scrub I’ve made to date. It is perfect for exfoliating you skin in preparation for a self-tanner and is so moisturizing that you really don’t need to apply any lotion afterwards.
1 16oz jar (You can use a wide-mouthed mason jar.)
1 1/4 cups coconut palm sugar (find it at a health food store and it is so good used in baking too!)
3/4 cup virgin coconut oil (warmed to liquify)
1tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
1tsp vanilla essence
Simply combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and transfer into your jar. Remember when the coconut oil cools, it will solidify, so you may need to add more if you feel your scrub is too dry or thick. I do recommend waiting until it’s completely cool before adding more. If you decide you want it less dry, stir in another 1/4 cup of warmed coconut oil.
To use, simply scoop out a walnut sized lump of the scrub and rub in all over your bod! If you are giving it as a gift, you may want to tie a small wooden scoop to the jar with a pretty ribbon and label.
