Organic Coconut Oil
Pure Cane Sugar
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
Half-Pint Canning Jars
I splurged a bit and went to Trader Joe's for Organic Virgin Coconut Oil - it was about $6 for a 16-ounce jar, but I can make 4 half-pint jars of this lovely scrub with it. Don't be alarmed when you take the cover off to find a semi-solid that resembles shortening (but smells oh-so-delicious!) Microwave the coconut oil for 20-seconds at a time until it is liquid, then add 4 drops of Sweet Orange essential oil for each jar.
Stir in 1 cup of sugar for each jar until the mixture resembles a paste. Screw the lids on tight, and store in a cool, dry place.
You might check your local Costco. You can get a huge jug of organic virgin coconut oil for about $23.

I recieved a jar of your wonderful sugar scrub from a sorority sister (who had made it), for Christmas. I am usually not into a lot of "cosmetics" and "luxury" body lotions and so on.....BUT....I LOVE this scrub and have used it all up. So, I asked her if she was making it to sell. She said "no, I just made it for my sorority sisters as a gift" but...she did give me your web site so now I can make it also. Thank you....it's a wonderful product and I am going to make it to give as gifts this year also.
I can't believe how soft my skin is once I wash this off!

Sue, thank you for your sweet note! I'm so glad that you loved it and took the time to find out how to make it and leave me a comment - it just made my day 🙂 I have several other ones that you might want to check out, too.
