This body scrub is made with only three ingredients: organic demerara sugar, organic extra-virgin coconut oil and organic shredded coconut. The result is a formula that looks, feels and smells incredible, as well as being so natural that you could actually eat it. The chunky sugar helps to slough away dead skin effectively without rubbing the surface raw, the sugar dissolving gradually to let the coconut oil hydrate and sooth skin. You need only a little bit to work each limb, which is a good job considering it'll set you back £22.00 for the pot above! Although I love the concept and I love the end result, I can't help but think it's incredibly overpriced for a little tub of ingredients you could pick up from a health food shop.
If you can't justify the price tag but love the idea, why not try creating your own at home? Simply mix brown sugar in a bowl with some melted coconut oil (heated in a saucepan,) add in some shredded coconut or fruit peel for texture and mix thoroughly. Use an old jam jar or glass candle holder to store the scrub, ensuring it's covered and refrigerated between uses to elongate its shelf life. It's incredibly quick, easy and cheap to do and would make fabulous gifts for loved ones; you can pick up decorative ribbons and tags from any craft shop to label your concoctions, sealing them with love. You can easily pick up the ingredients from a health food shop for less than a tenner, providing enough to make a good few tubs. Easy peasy and a great way to spend your weekend!
