DIY Body Scrub

Hello again!

I’m here with yet another DIY scrub but this time, it’s for the rest of your body (including your face!) This is a super easy, cheap and delicious smelling scrub that you will get obsessed over.

I decided to share my recipe for it because I saw one that was very similar to mine (except the one I saw had a ton of other unnecessary chemicals.) and the scrub cost over $20 bucks. Ouch no, thanks.  I’ll make my own for under three bucks, thanks!  (The only expensive part of this project is the mason jars but they are reusable so I think they are worth it.)

So let’s get started!

This is what you need:

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 cup brown sugar

10 drops of peppermint ( I recommend peppermint essential oil but I’m all out so extract will have to do.)

2 wide mouth mason jars (you can use any size/style, I prefer these ones because it’s easy to scoop it out.)

Take your 1/2 cup of coconut oil and put it into a microwave safe bowl.

Microwave it for 30 seconds or until it is completely liquefied.

Now take your melted coconut oil and your cup of brown sugar, pour it together and add 10 drops of peppermint extract, (you can add more or less depending on how fragrant you want it.)

Now that you have it all mixed, try it out on your fingers. Take your thumb and pointer finger and scrub them. If it is exfoliating enough for you, you are good to go.

If you want a harsher scrub, add more sugar.

If you want a lighter scrub, add more melted coconut oil a tsp at a time.

Now you are ready to pour it into your mason jars.

There you go, all done.

To use this scrub all you have to do is stir before use, apply to any body part (except your privates, sugar is a big no-no for that area.) and then all you have to do is scrub it over your skin to get rid of all the dead skin.  Then just wash off with your favorite scented soap and you will have super smooth, clean skin.

Please let me know if there are any other DIY projects you want me to do 🙂 Comment down below or go to my about me section to find out how to contact me.
