Pinterest really is da bomb when it comes to DIY beauty treatments and after trolling through it this morning I decided to make my very own sugar scrub. I found my recipe here and it literally took me all of five minutes to make it.
You will need:-
- 1 Cup of Sugar
- 1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil
- Fresh Limes or Lemons
The method really is as simple as this - melt your coconut oil in the microwave until it forms a liquid and then mix it together with your sugar. Squeeze in your fresh lemon or lime, mix it again and hey presto, you've made yourself a sugar scrub. I chose to store mine in a recycled glass jar and decorated it with some brown string but you can of course add labels and other pretty decorations, especially if you're making this as a gift for someone.
I've read that this makes an amazing shaving scrub so I will be putting that to the test later. OH and it's totally edible if you get a little peckish in the bath... no? Just me then.
