Orange Spice Coconut Oil DIY Body Scrub Recipe
This DIY body scrub uses three all natural ingredients: coconut oil, sugar, and essential oils. This can be appealing to those who prefer to avoid synthetic chemicals and additives commonly found in commercial skincare products. Making your own body scrub allows you to customize the ingredients to suit your preferences and skin type. You can adjust the ratio of exfoliants to moisturizers, choose specific essential oils for their aromatherapeutic benefits, and tailor the scrub to address your skin’s needs.
Orange Spice Coconut Oil Body Scrub Supplies Needed:
- Small Glass Jar (4oz works great)
- Coconut Oil
- Essential Oils (Cinnamon Bark, Nutmeg and Orange)
- Measuring Cup and Measuring Spoon
How To Make Coconut Oil Body Scrub:
Gather your supplies and grab a spot in your kitchen on the counter.
Start by measuring out 1/4 of a cup of granulated sugar. Pour that into a small mixing bowl.
Next, Measure out 1/2 of a Tablespoon of liquid coconut oil. Heaping will be just fine! Stir that into the sugar.
Add your essential oils next. 10 drops of orange essential oil. 6 drops of cinnamon essential oil. 3 drops of nutmeg essential oil. Mix everything together. You want the consistency to be similar to wet sand.
Once you have everything mixed together, transfer your scrub to a small glass jar. Add a label if you’d like and you’re done! Simple right?
How To Use DIY Body Scrub:
To use, take a small amount of the scrub and gently massage it onto damp skin in circular motions. Focus on areas with dry or rough skin, such as elbows, knees, and feet. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water and pat dry with a towel. The coconut oil will leave your skin moisturized and soft.
Remember to avoid using the scrub on broken or irritated skin, and discontinue use if you experience any discomfort. Enjoy your homemade coconut oil body scrub for soft, smooth skin!
What I really love about this body scrub is that it contains no chemicals, no harmful toxins and nothing artificial! It’s all natural and perfect for all skin types. A little goes a long way so this DIY body scrub will last quite a while!
Something else that you can do with these Fall scrubs are give them as gifts!
