DIY Day: Coconut Sugar Scrub

I’m nearing my 100th post on this blog! To celebrate, I am posting something that is not food. It’s a scrub! I woke up at 5AM this morning eager to look up some DIY recipes online. I’ve always wanted to make my own scrubs. They can get so expensive! Most recipes call for either coconut or olive oil. I think olive oil is very sticky, and I don’t care for the smell, so I tried mixing the sugar with coconut oil.


1/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup granulated sugar

several drops of vanilla extract


Melt the coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix. Scoop into an air-tight container to keep out the ants!
