I know that homemade scrubs are popular right now and while I am sort of jumping on the bandwagon, I’ve actually been creating this scrub for YEARS…long before blogs existed. Seriously. However, my version is different then any other version I’ve seen out there. And it smells delicious too! So you will definitely want to stick around for this recipe: Coconut Lime Raw Sugar Scrub!
This sugar scrub is homemade from 3 simple ingredients. It is all natural and creates a wonderfully amazing exfoliating scrub for your hands, body or feet! You will love this!
Here is what you will need:
The key to this scrub is in the sugar. I have tried scrubs using granulated and brown sugar and they are nice, but using Raw Sugar definitely gives you a deeper exfoliating scrub.
So what is Raw (aka Turbinado) Sugar!? Turbinado sugar is less-processed and less-refined then other sugars. It is sugar derived from natural sugar cane, it is brown in color and has larger crystals then granulated or brown sugar.
Where to buy this? At your local grocery store. Seriously. Look down your baking aisle right next to your granulated, brown and artificial sugars. This is not expensive and has a ton of great uses! Or you can always purchase it from HERE.
Doesn’t it just look delicious!?
Coconut Oil is also available at most local grocery stores or it is available for purchase HERE.
To make your scrub you will simply mix the above ingredients by spoon or hand.
If your coconut oil is in a solid state, you can carefully soften it by placing it in the microwave for about 1 minute.
I juiced a fresh lime for my scrub! Yum! I love citrus scents and lime is one of my all-time favorite!
Mixing fresh lime juice with coconut oil creates an amazing smelling scrub! Seriously one of my favorite scents!
This is so yummy smelling you could almost eat it. Well, you could, it is technically all food…but I prefer to scrub my hands with it!
How amazing is that! One of my favorite hand scrubs with only 3 ingredients and it smells AMAZING!
This would make a wonderful gift for a friend, sister, mom, teacher or neighbor! Who wouldn’t love to get a cute little jar of yummy smelling scrub!?
And I even created a FREE PRINTABLE LABEL for you!
I printed mine out on an adhesive label sheet and stuck it right on my cute glass jar!
If you like this idea, would you take a moment and PIN IT for me!? Thanks a ton!
