Homemade Coconut Oil Salt or Sugar Scrub
I was inspired from my good friend Jessica to make this coconut oil salt body scrubs. After she told me about this coconut oil body scrub she made, I just had to try it. It was so easy and works like a charm to soften rough skin. She is all about healthy eating, healthy living and during her visit we talked the great changes she's made making healthier experiences for herself and others. Thanks Jessica, love this! I also love the sugar scrub also in this post. Keep reading!

Homemade Coconut Oil Salt Scrub
1 1/2 cups coconut oil
2 cups Epsom salt
20 drops of your favorite oil ( lavender, fruit scents whatever you like)
The easiest way to mix this is to microwave the coconut oil for a few seconds to become easy to stir.
In a bowl add the oil, salt and mix until well combined. I used disposable bowls and old spoons to mix it with.
Stir in the fragrance oil.
For the Sugar Scrub:
|You read that right! These are both two ways to make fabulous scented body scrubs that removes dead skin. I was amazed to see the results in just two uses. Perfect all year long. I made two different kinds. The salt scrub is great to make the bottoms of your feet silky smooth or any rough area of your skin. The sugar perfect for arms, legs, especially after a beach day. Just like going to a spa, so pamper yourself! Use your favorite fragrance oils or citrus peels in either one. Most jars to store this great scrub in can be found in local thrift stores or use some fancy food jars.

Be sure to clean the shower floors or bathtub as this residue can become very slippery.
