Coconut Lime Scrub

Today I have a easy and natural scrub for you to make!  The flavors of lime & coconut are one of my favorites; I hope you like them as well!

Coconut Lime Scrub Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp of lime zest

  • Directions:

    Melt the coconut oil, then mix all the ingredients together.  Easy peasy!

    Coconut oil is so good for you.  I'm sure you've heard the million way to use coconut both with beauty and in the kitchen.  I personally love using coconut oil as a lotion, even if I cringe because I can't stand anything on my hands!  The lime is mostly added for the scent, so I can pretend I'm on a tropical island, and the sugar is just a natural exfloliant.  However, lime is also exfoliating because it has acid, much like lemon.  Salts and sugars, in all their forms, are great for exfoliation.  Baking soda is amazing to use on your face!  I'll post another great scrub I use with baking soda soon!


    My other favorite scrub is a delicious coffee one; I'll share that one with you soon!
