DIY Coconut Sugar Scrub

Hi friends, 
So today I wanted to share with you the coconut sugar scrub I use on a regular basis that not only smells incredible, but makes my skin feel amazing and because I make it myself, I get to control what ingredients go into it. I have been making this scrub for about a year now and I have even made it as gifts for my girlfriends who love it as much as I do! 
Here is the cast of characters you will need,
1/2 cup of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (I actually found this Trader Joe's brand on Amazon since I don't have a Trader Joe's anywhere near me), Zest of 1 Lemon, (this is optional but I love adding some lemon zest to it because it truly smells amazing especially when paired with the vanilla beans) Seeds from 2 Vanilla beans (scrape the seeds out) and 3/4 of a cup of Granulated Sugar. 


Start off my adding your sugar, vanilla seeds, and lemon zest in a large bowl and set aside.


Scoop some of the coconut oil in a microwave safe cup and microwave it until the oil is just about all melted.


Add the oil in the bowl with the sugar mixture.


Mix together to combine. I wanted to point out something, when you first start stirring the mixture, it will feel and look very thin and runny but resist the urge to add any more sugar, keep in mind that as the mixture cools, the coconut oil hardens leaving you with a creamy and thick mixture you see below.


Place your mixture in a tightly sealed jar and keep it somewhere cool and slightly dark (I keep mine in the corner shelf in my bathroom)


These are my favorite scrubbing tools, the brush is just a scrubbing brush I got online but I just take out the handle and use is as a hand held brush and the foot scrub is perfect for scrubbing the heels of your feet leaving them soft and tender. This will keep for months and trust me when I tell you that It's the best scrub out there! 



Hope you enjoyed this little DIY project, it's super easy and quick to do and it truly works wonders on my skin!

  2. This sounds amazing, But,, I don't have vanilla bean seeds. Can you use vanilla extract instead? If so....how much?

  3. If you have oily skin, this might not work for you as the coconut oil will make your face greasy & might result in pimples, just saying from personal experience & also knowing that Laura has a very dry skin :) but great tip Laura, thanks for sharing
