Most of the moms I know could use a little pampering. Okay, that's not true. Most of the moms I know could use a lot of pampering! I'm not a big fan of spending a lot of money on fancy spa treatments or bath products - with a tight budget, there's just not a lot of room for extras like that. So every time I'm able to make something for myself or a friend, I consider that a huge win. Today I'm sharing this amazing Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub recipe with you. It's made with essential oils and ingredients that you probably already have in your home.
If you're not already using essential oils for wellness in your home, you're missing out! We use Young Living essential oils because of their amazing seed-to-seal promise and have loved seeing the benefits of these oils for the last year.
Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub
-1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil, melted
-1 1/2 cups white sugar
-10 drops Lime essential oil
-Juice from 1/2 fresh lime
-Lime zest from 1/2 fresh lime, 1 pinch reserved
How to make it:
1. Combine all ingredients in a small glass bowl. Mix well.
2. Spoon the sugar scrub into a fresh jar.
3. Sprinkle 1 pinch of lime zest on top.
4. Use within 3 days or refrigerate to store indefinitely.
Note: When the coconut oil hardens, the scrub will feel dry and crumbly. Once it is massaged into the skin, the oil melts and the scrub smooths and moisturizes skin.
Yes - it is seriously that easy! Whip up a batch for yourself or for a friend. With the green zest on top, it would even make a cute teacher's gift for St. Patrick's Day! With the fresh lime juice and the essential oil, this stuff smells divine. Citrus is one of my favorite scents.
