I've been trying to use products that have less chemicals, so what better way to do that than to make your own delicious smelling scrub. I've read that grapefruit is refreshing & that coconut oil is super moisturizing so I knew that this scrub was going to be a good one.
What you'll need (to make a super small batch):
1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup of Granulated Sugar
1 Tbsp of Grapefruit Juice
Zest of 1 Grapefruit
10 Drops of Peppermint Oil
24 Drops of Grapefruit Oil
Beet Juice (to add the pink color)
Add coconut oil + granulated sugar in a mixer until a paste is formed. Once the paste is formed, add in grapefruit juice, zest of grapefruit, peppermint oil & grapefruit oil and mix all together. When ingredients are mixed together & a whipped scrub is formed, add in the beet juice to add that wonderful pink color.
My first impression while making this was that it smelled amazing!! My husband & I have both tried it and it works pretty good. He uses it on his hands & it definitely smooths them out. I tried it on my face & as much as I do love the way it works, the coconut oil isn't too good for my skin since it is already super oily prone. I would definitely make this again (just not use it on my face) because it was super easy & truly a refreshing scrub.
What are some homemade scrubs that you've made & loved?
