Aw Coconuts.. Coconut Lime Body Scrub Recipe

Happy Monday!!

Wanted to pop in an share a recipe I found and tweaked some
For a delicious smelling body scrub
Coconut Lime Body Scrub

Crazy easy and simple to make

Here is a list of ingredients

Juice of 2 Limes
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
4 tbsp Coconut Oil 

Found my Coconut Oil at Trader Joe's for $5 something
much better price than the $8 the Grocery store wanted

Your first step is going to be to squeeze your limes
If you don't have a juicer, just cut them up and try squeezing by hand
no biggie

After squeezing your limes 
Add the lime juice and your 1/2 cup of brown sugar together
in a small bowl whisk until free of lumps

Than Add your coconut oil 1 tbsp at a time to thicken whisk
in between tbsp

I smells wonder, I wanted to add some rub to mine to drink
but I don't think it would be easy to get

Then I placed the contents of the bowl into a canning jar
perfect for sitting beside the tub

Stir with a spoon or your hand before use to make sure its mixed well together

Smear it in the shower or tub, apply all over your body in small circles
The acid in the fruit juice is suppose to sloughs off dry patches
Perfect for the winter dryness your skin gets this time of year

These would make a nice gift with a handmade tag
hmm christmas gift idea for next year

  1. Sounds wonderful and I will make it. How long will it last before it goes bad? Or does it ever go bad?
