Mother's Day DIY ~ Coconut Lime Moisturizing Sugar Scrub

Hi lovelies!  I meant to post this earlier today, but sometimes life gets in the way, ya know?  I love homemade beauty products, especially all natural, organic ones.  This one here is so organic, you could eat it!  Which brings me to why I'm posting it.  Remember when mom used to always squeeze you and say you were good enough to eat?  No?  Am I the only one?  Well now it's your turn to give her something so sweet it's good enough to eat :)  {Click to keep reading!}

You'll need:

  • Coconut oil
  • Turbinado sugar (it's the raw, unprocessed stuff)
  • Half pint mason jar(s)
  • Lime (or pineapple!)
  • Not shown, mixing bowl, spoon, measuring cup.

I microwaved about 2.5 - 3 tablespoons of coconut oil (I hardly ever precisely measure things, I just eyeball them and know when they look right!) in a glass bowl.

Then add about 1 cup of turbinado sugar, mix it in really well!

Squeeze the juice of half a lime into the mixture, and stir it all together.  Mmmmm it smells so delicious!

Pour (or spoon) it into the mason jar.

Write on the lid with a sharpie, and tie a pretty ribbon around the lid.  Wrap it up with some other pampering pieces, maybe nail polishes, fancy soaps, lotions, you get the idea!  Since coconut oil can be used as a moisturizer (among a zillion other things!), this is a great moisturizing exfoliator.  You'll want to make enough to have some for yourself, I promise!  I use this before I shave and it helps keep my skin silky soft.
