How to make Christmas cookie sugar scrub

yield: one 8 ounce jar

 

step 1:  add 1/4 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil to a heat-safe bowl or measuring cup

tip: This recipe uses the kind of coconut oil that’s solid at room temperature.

tip:  Look for a coconut oil that’s cold-pressed and unrefined so that it will have all its amazing anti-inflammatory, skin-soothing properties.

step 2:  melt the coconut oil either in the microwave or using the double boiler method

tip:  To melt using the double boiler method, simmer about 2 inches of water in a pot over medium heat on the stovetop.  Once the water is simmering, add the heat-safe bowl with the coconut oil to the pot.  Stir the coconut oil occasionally.  Once it has completely melted, remove from heat.

How to use sugar scrub

  • wash your skin with soap or body wash and rinse well
  • scoop out sugar scrub with a clean spoon (be careful to not get water into the sugar scrub container)
  • apply a generous amount of sugar scrub to wet skin
  • work on one area of body at a time, then when finished with that area apply sugar scrub to another area and work on that area
  • massage sugar scrub into skin using a circular motion to help exfoliate and remove dead skin cells
