Two weeks ago I was assigned Mangia! For my Secret Recipe club assignment. I mentioned that a couple of things caught my eye. One in particular was Chelsy’s 3-Ingredient Coconut Body Scrub . I didn’t make it because I didn’t have coconut sugar and, well, it really isn’t a food recipe (even though it’s completely edible). During my next shopping trip at our natural food store I found coconut sugar…yay! Time to get my scrub on.
Got this container at Michael’s Craft Store for only $1.00
I was really excited to make my own scrub, I had run out of my commercial one and didn’t want to buy any when I found out it is so easy to make. Not only that, it’s made with ingredients you can pronounce. It’s also made with ingredients that have a naturally long shelf life which means I can whip some of this scrub up as often as I need it. Seriously with this cold dry weather in Montana I need it way more than I want to need it!
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or other coarse sugar like demerara)
- 2 tablespoons almond oil
- 10 to 20 drops essential oils (I used 7 ginger 10 lime)
