I use sugar scrub all the time and NEVER thought of making it myself until a few months ago. So with a friend, T’s inspiration, I made it, tried it, and LOVE it! So, I thought I’d share it with you! I have used it on my body, face, lips, and hands but use it mostly with a pumice stone as a foot scrub. Here is how to make your own sugar scrub.
It’s SO easy to make. I just wanted to share a few tips. Here is what you need.
- 1 Part Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil
- 1 Part Brown Sugar
- Plate or Bowl
- Two Metal Spoons
Depending on your container size, you need equal parts coconut oil and brown sugar.
Using to utensils, mix the two ingredients together on a plate or in a bowl. It’s important not to use your hands or fingers because the coconut oil will melt very quickly.
Once your coconut oil and brown sugar are mixed well, use your utensils to place the mixture into your container. This way, you avoid the heat of your hands, allowing the coconut oil to stay solid.
That’s it! I like to use this sugar scrub in the shower for my feet. The coconut oil stays solid until you use it. I place a little on a pumice stone and gently scrub to help with calluses and it works great! You can also use it as a body or face scrub. It would make a great gift for Mother’s day, Father’s Day, or as a teacher’s gift as well.
