Although all the ingredients in this recipe are edible, this is a body scrub perfect for exfoliating dry winter skin and leaving behind a pleasant scent of coconut and vanilla and your skin moisturized. It is an easy gift to throw together from what is already in your pantry. I have a jar by the kitchen sink to soften my hands after long sessions of cooking and cleaning up. If using in a tiled shower, rinse any residue super well so as not to encourage mold growth in the grout with the sugars. Whether for a sweet smelling Valentine’s Day gift, or simply for a winter skin softener to make you dream of a tropical escape, this is a fun and easy project to create right in your kitchen!
VANILLA~COCONUT~BROWN SUGAR BODY SCRUB
2 c brown sugar
1 c granulated sugar
1/2 c coconut oil
1/2 c safflower oil
1 T vanilla extract
Method: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Store in a glass jar with a lid. If giving as a gift, tie on a scoop or spoon, for dispensing. You will need to give the scrub a stir once in a while to keep the oils evenly distributed.
