DIY Sugar Body Scrub

The last time I bought a body scrub was… since forever. I have long since opted out of using store bought body scrubs. Not only does it have lots of chemicals, you never know what goes in and how it is produced. Making your own body scrub not only saves you thousands of bucks in the long run, but you are in total control of what you want inside. My everyday go to body scrub is the coconut oil and sugar scrub with lemon added to it. I am quite sure you have come across a meme that reads ‘Coconut oil fixes everything, your hair, your skin and even your bank account’. Lol.

Here is a pictorial guide of my home made body scrub. You will need;
