Homemade Skin Softening Scrubs

Summer will soon be here and there will be no more hiding under sweaters and coats. So when I saw a recipe for Homemade Skin Softening Scrubs I thought I would give it a try.

Coconut Oil
Sugar
Mason jar
Essential Oils (optional)
  • Melt coconut oil. You could use olive oil which is just as good for your skin but it does have a stronger scent.
  • Pour in enough sugar to make a paste. 
  • Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. 
  • Pour the skin treatment into a clean glass jar with a secure lid.

And thats it...simple. Just scoop a bit out every day when you shower and rub it over the parts of your body that need help exfoliating like elbows, knees and feet. So far so good
 
This beauty treatment keeps beautifully for months. You could make this a lovely gift by pouring it into a mason jar and decorating it with stickers or decoupage. Tie some colorful ribbon or raffia into a bow and give someone a gorgeous gift.
