There is one food item that you will always be 100% guaranteed to find on my kitchen shelf, no matter what. Can you guess what it is? The answer is coconut oil! I use it for literally everything. I use it for cooking, I use it as a pseudo mouthwash by oil pulling, and I also use it for a variety of cosmetic applications, like moisturizing my skin and hair. Today I’m actually going to be sharing a recipe for my favorite coconut oil sugar scrub that I love to use any time of the year.
The good news is that this is one incredibly easy recipe to prepare. You’ll only need three simple ingredients to make it: three tablespoons of coconut oil of course, along with ¾ cup of white sugar and approximately 20 drops of sweet orange essential oil.
Simply mix these three ingredients together and then keep your sugar scrub mixture sealed up in a jar or container with a lid until you’re ready to use it.
