Homemade Body scrub

By Lauren

The winter months can be pretty tough, particularly with the darker days. My homemade sugar body scrub takes only 5 minutes to make and is really uplifting.

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • Approx ½ cup coconut oil
  • The rind of 1 grapefruit
  • 15 drops of grapefruit essential oil

Combine ingredients in a bowl, adding the oil gradually. You want the scrub to have a nice gritty texture, so adjust the oil as necessary. Place scrub in an air-tight jar and use twice a week for super soft skin.

The great thing is that you can adapt the recipe to make any scent you like – Lavender makes a relaxing scrub.

Homemade body scrubs also make perfect presents!
