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;
Brown sugar (can substitute for white if not available),
Lemon (sliced into half),
Empty container (make sure it has a cover), and
Measure out 2 tablespoonful of coconut oil into your empty container.
If your coconut oil is in the solid form like mine, melt in the microwave for about 45seconds. And slice your lemon into two halves.
Squeeze out the lemon juice into the coconut oil. Make sure you squeeze out the juice completely.
Measure 12 tablespoonful of sugar into coconut oil and lemon juice mixture. Mix together.
Voila! Your body scrub is ready, how simple is that.
You can use it and store for weeks.
DIY be saving you coins since the stone age centuries. Lol.
