Today’s project isn’t for eating, even though it smells exactly like cookie dough!!! Coconut oil is a beauty “secret” that’s all over the place right now, so I decided to give it a try in this sugar body scrub. It feels exactly like olive oil, so you can use that if you don’t have coconut oil (though olive oil will give this scrub a slightly different scent). The shredded coconut adds extra texture to this scrub but I was a little bit disappointed that the coconut didn’t add much of a scent (and coconut oil doesn’t really have a scent to it)… so I decided to cut coconut from this scrub’s name. It’s an optional ingredient, you decide!
Cookie Dough Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup shredded coconut (optional)
Toss all ingredients into a food processor and blend until coconut has been cut into tiny pieces. If you leave out the shredded coconut, just mix all ingredients together in a bowl!
Store body scrub in an airtight container. This scrub is perfect for softening hands and feet, or mix a little of it into your body wash!
