DIY Body Scrub

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing a recipe for a DIY body scrub.

If you look at the products that you use in your shower right now, you will see that there are tons of ingredients/chemicals in them.  So, it really is not the best for your body. In the summer, I started making my own body scrubs because it is SO easy to make, saves money and is GREAT for your skin. I have seen body scrubs that cost around sixty dollars in store, and embarrassingly, I have purchased them.

Making your own scrubs is a great alternative to store bought scrubs because it is great for your skin and often, uses ingredients that you might already have around the house.

So, for my brown sugar body scrub you will need:

1/4 cup of coconut oil (If you don’t have it on hand, use olive oil)

1 cup of brown sugar

1 tsp of cinnamon

A dash of vanilla extract

2 tablespoons of honey

Ingredients that you will need

Ingredients that you will need

DIRECTIONS: Melt coconut oil (if you are using olive oil you don’t need to do this), then in a bowl combine ALL of the ingredients and mix together until there are no longer large lumps (Yep, it is that easy)

This scrub leaves your body feeling SOOO smooth, and you can eat some too 😉

Enjoy,
