Homemade Body scrub
By Lauren, Edinburgh Citizen
The winter months can be pretty tough, particularly with the darker days. My homemade sugar body scrub takes only 5 minutes to make and is really uplifting.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- Approx ½ cup coconut oil
- The rind of 1 grapefruit
- 15 drops of grapefruit essential oil
Combine ingredients in a bowl, adding the oil gradually. You want the scrub to have a nice gritty texture, so adjust the oil as necessary. Place scrub in an air-tight jar and use twice a week for super soft skin.
The great thing is that you can adapt the recipe to make any scent you like – Lavender makes a relaxing scrub.
