I told the kids that we could make this DIY citrus sugar scrub and do a pedicure yesterday, but we never got around to it! I ended up making this scrub today.
It's pretty basic. All it has is coconut oil, brown sugar, Sweet Orange essential oil and Lemongrass essential oil.
1 cup Coconut Oil (approximately)
1 1/8 cup Brown Sugar (approximately)
I had a jar that I wanted to keep that originally had Orange Curd in it that I reused for our scrub. (We got it for our Epcot World Showcase at our DisneySide party. The Orange Curd was so good!)
I thought that I would just fill up my jar half way with coconut oil and mix in almost just as much sugar. My coconut oil was solid since it's Winter. I warmed it up by putting the jar of coconut oil in hot water until the coconut oil melted.
Future Fashionista and I used it during our Citrus Pedicure that we did. It left my skin feeling so soft! I also used it in the shower. It was a little hard because of the coconut oil, but it was well worth it. I had a hard, scaly, dry patch on my elbow and it is so much softer now.
