DIY Coconut Oil Body Scrub

I am a huge fan of coconut oil and all of the amazing health benefits that come from using it, so making a body scrub from the miracle ingredient was a natural succession for me. I haven't tried too many different blends for a scrub, but this one seems to work really well and has a nice light smell to it :)

Vanilla Coconut Body Scrub

1/3 c virgin olive oil
1/3 c coconut oil (softened in the microwave)
1/3 c salt
1/3 c brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

  • Stir everything together and store in an airtight container. I currently have mine in a plastic storage container. I would prefer glass, but didn't have the right size jar with the right size opening on hand right now :)
  • You can use this as often as you like/need. The more that you rinse off, the less coconut oil will be left on your skin. Leave on as much as you want though. It absorbs nicely and doesn't leave a greasy feel to your skin.
That's it!!!! Can you believe that you've been paying up to $30 for bottles of yucky chemicals that have less of an effect on your skin?!?!
