Exfoliating Coconut Oil & Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipe

Advertisement

This is my most luxuriant body scrub recipe. The majority of the ingredients featured in this body scrub recipe serve as natural moisturizers. Even the coffee beans, which are the main exfoliating ingredient, release a subtle aromatic oil that stops the skin from becoming inflamed because of the exfoliation. The combination of coconut oil, shea butter and avocado oil leave your skin softer than it has ever been. While, the walnut paste, honey, brown sugar and ground coffee beans work together to both moisturize and exfoliate your skin in the most gentle way possible. But, best of all, this all natural body scrub smells just like a delectable coffee cake without the use of artificial fragrances and essential oils that can cause allergic skin irritation in some individuals.

Exfoliating Coconut Oil & Brown Sugar Body Scrub Preparation

  • Using the double boiler method, melt the shea butter and cocoa butter in a ceramic or metal bowl. Do not use a wooden bowl because it will absorb the oil
  • Once these oils melt, using a metal spoon add the coconut oil and stir slowly until it melts too. Be sure to melt your coconut oil last so it doesn’t become too hot
  • Once these oils melt remove them from the heat
  • Add Jojoba oil, Avocado oil/ EV olive oil and sweet almond oil to the melted oils and stir well
  • Add ground walnut paste and honey to the oil and stir to dissolve honey
  • Add soap
  • Using the whisk on a hand mixer whisk oil and soap together
  • Add brown sugar, colloidal oatmeal and coffee to the whisked mixture and whisk again
  • Place mixture in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes or until coconut oil begins to solidify. Be careful to not let the coconut oil become too hard
  • Once the coconut oil has solidified, whisk again until your body scrub begins to look like whipped cream
  • To use, simply scoop a generous amount of this body scrub onto your bath loofah or soft bath sponge and Enjoy!
