DIY with Dani: Body and Face Scrub

This week’s DIY is SUPER easy and quick! I really like this homemade body and face scrub because you can make it organic and you know exactly what you are putting on your body. I used organic coconut sugar and organic coconut oil. White and brown sugar work well too as long as it’s coarse. There are no measurements for the ingredients- it is based on the size of the jar and how scrubby (more sugar) or how lubricating (more coconut oil) you want it to be. A reminder with essential oils- make sure you know how your skin reacts to it first- e.g. i cannot put lavender or tea tree because my skin is too sensitive.  You can use this all over your body including your face and lips but be gentle when scrubbing sensitive areas.

Supplies:

Coarse sugar

Unrefined Coconut Oil

Essential oil (optional)

Jar (purchase at a craft store)

Directions:

1. Pour coconut oil into the jar.

2. Add essential oil (optional)

3. Pour in coarse sugar

4. Stir

5. Enjoy 🙂
