This bitter cold winter is taking a toll on my skin, especially my hands. So I whipped up my favorite homemade sugar scrub and have a small jar at both my kitchen and bathroom sink. It smells and feels amazing on my hands!
It’s like a mini spa treatment every time I wash my hands. Not only can you use it on your hands but it’s also great for your feet, and body. I do recommend that you be careful if you take it in the shower with you as the coconut oil can make the bottom of the tub super slippery. Alright, so let’s get to the recipe.
1/2 Cup coconut oil (I love Trader Joes organic virgin coconut oil)
1/4 Cup granulated sugar
10 drops of your favorite essential oil, I used lemon and lavender
Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. If you want a more coarse texture add more sugar to the mix. Once all the ingredients are combined you’re all set, grab a small scoop and massage into your hands for about 30 seconds with a little bit of warm water. Rinse and pat dry.
If you don’t have essential oils you can omit the oils for a fragrance free scrub or zest a lemon and add to the mixture.
