Coconut, Rose & Lavender Sugar Scrub
Coconut, Rose, & Lavender Sugar Scrub
by Olivia Pennelle, Liv's Recovery Kitchen
Looking to make homemade gifts this year, I adapted one of my favorite recipes from Kale & Caramel’s Rose Sugar Scrub. I especially like the addition of lavender which is known to promote relaxation and soothe the senses.
This is such a simple and natural recipe that you could eat it if you really wanted (but only do so if you can verify the source of the essential oils you use - I use doTERRA, most of which are edible).
Makes a small jar which will last for a week.
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup organic granulated sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons melted organic coconut oil (preferably virgin press)
1 1/2 tablespoons dried rose petals
6-8 drops of pure organic lavender essential oil
8-10 drops of rose water
Finely grind the shredded coconut in either a coffee grinder or smoothie maker.
Place the coconut and all other ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Store in an airtight container.
When using, apply liberally to the body (excluding the face).
