Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub
adapted from: New Nostalgia
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 1/4 cup white sugar
2 tbsp lime juice, fresh
zest of 1 lime
>If you store your coconut oil in the fridge you will want it to sit out (or set the container in a pan with hot water to soften it) so you can scoop out the amount needed. -I used a paring knife to twist out chunks since ours was hard as a rock and I don't have much patience today. If you keep it at room temperature, you may decrease the amount of time in the microwave.
> I used lime just and added the zest to the recipe, but you could any citrus that you have on hand. Orange juice/zest would be lovely in this.
>When you store this in the fridge, the scrub will get thicker (less oily).
1. Measure out the amount of coconut oil, place it in a microwavable dish, and microwave for 30 seconds to 75 seconds, or until the oil is melted. It's fine if there are still some small chunks of oil not melted.
2. Add in the sugar, lime juice, and zest into the oil, stir, and pour in a jar.
Store in the fridge when not using.
Also if you go here, Amy tells you how to use this scrub when shaving to get silky smooth legs.
>If you want to do a home medi/pedi just remove the nail polish, trim your nails, and rub the scrubs on your wet feet and hands. You will have clean and smooth nails that are ready to be polished.
