It’s winter, and my skin is dry and itchy. I’m craving warmer weather and tropical smells…and softer skin. I decided to give myself a treat and whip up some sugar scrub to moisturize my skin. I wanted to make one that reminded me more of warmer times, and this Coconut Lime Moisturizing Sugar Scrub was just what I needed! If you are a long time reader here, then you may remember my Peppermint Sugar Scrub that I shared last year. It was so popular that it was pinned on Pinterest over 100,000 times! I hope that you love this Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub too. It’s not only a great at home spa treat that you can make for yourself and your family, but would also make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift or just a sweet gift for a friend or loved one!
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
- 10 Drops Lime Essential Oil
- (Double for a larger batch)
- Mix together in a bowl and transfer to a lidded jar. Will keep for up to 6 months.
I put a small container of it beside the sink in my bathroom to quickly moisturize my hands, and a larger container beside my shower/bathtub for the rest of my body…especially my feet, elbows and knees! All you have to do is wet your skin, rub a small amount of the sugar scrub into your skin, and rinse. The sugar helps exfoliate your skin while the coconut oil moisturizes and helps regenerate your skin cells. The lime essential oil acts as an antioxidant and can help reduce dark spots…it also is a great insect repellent! I hope you enjoy this sugar scrub recipe as much as I do!
