Tips for Natural Living – Coconut Oil Body Scrub

In my never ending quest to be as plastic-free as possible, I’ve been taking a closer look at the products our family uses on a daily basis.  Which of them, if not all, can we DIY to eliminate the need to purchase yet another plastic container?  Well, while researching the endless amounts of things that one can do with coconut oil, I came across this recipe by Deliciously organized for a Coconut Oil Body Scrub.  I decided to tweak it a bit and go for it!




1 cup organic raw brown Turbinado sugar
1/3 cup dead sea salts or other sea salt
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
2 tablespoons almond oil
1/2 tablespoon Vitamin E Oil
1/2 cup crushed Lavender Flowers (optional)
5-7 drops Lavender Essential Oil


Coconut Body Scrub in a jar

Combine sugar and salt, then add in oils one at a time checking for consistency. If too dry at the end, add a bit more  coconut oil.  Then mix in any dried flowers and essential oils.  I also love to combine Sweet Orange essential oil with Lavender or for a pick me up scrub use a combination of Peppermint and Rosemary!

This scrub is wonderful in the bath or bath or shower for all your edges and rough parts.  Or by the sink as a nice hand softener. Just rinse with warm water and you’ll have yummy soft skin.

Have fun!
