Brown Sugar and Coconut Oil Body Scrub
My favourite body scrub by Caribbean Tan is finished and I couldn’t bother making the mission to Dischem just to buy another one. I also, just so happen to have no extra money this month to throw around and so I decided to just make my own with ingredients I already had at home.
½ Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
1tsp Vanilla essence
Place the coconut oil in to a mixing bowl at a solid consistency and blend until soft but not melted. I used a standing electric mixer to do this as it allows the coconut oil to all blend really well or you can just use a whisk or hand beater.
Then add the brown sugar and vanilla essence and mix again. I added the entire mixture to a food processor and blended it at a medium speed. Do not blend for too long as the mixture will begin to melt. If this does happen, you can just put it in the freezer for a few minutes and then blend again.
Once it was well-blended with an almost fluffy texture I transferred it to my empty Caribbean Tan tub that I had already removed the sticker from and cleaned.
