Here's everything we need.
1 cup granulated white table sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
Orange essential oil
Lemon Essential Oil
Container (I used a small wide mouth pint mason jar)
Start out by pouring your sugar into the largest measuring cup.
Next we microwave the coconut oil for maybe 30 seconds to make it a liquid (for easier stirring). Ya'll PLEASE excuse my nasty microwave, it is getting a good scrub tonight!
Next, pour the melted coconut oil into the largerst measuring cup with the sugar and stir really well.
Add your essential oils (maybe 10-15 drops each more or less depending on your sense of smell)
Keep mixing until all of the sugar is incorporated. I tried a little to wash my hands at this point, and found that it was very greasy. So I added another 1/2 cup of sugar. Mixed well. It's a little crumbly rather than smooth but it's much less greasy. I guess I have to keep working with the ratios.
Pack scrub into mason jar.
Once full, you're done! It smells divine! You could use any mix of essential oils that you like, or use none at all. The coconut smell alone is really nice as well. I had quite a bit extra that I put in a Glad container for my own use. This one is a present for my MIL's birthday.
Hope you enjoyed! Leave a comment and I'll love you forever! LOL
