DIY Grapefruit Mint Scrub

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?
