I don’t know about you, but between the arctic cold air outside and the constant forced air heat in our house, my entire family’s skin is very, very DRY. I searched around a bit and came up with a sweet + salty body scrub using ingredients we already had on hand at home. The result is something that smells good enough to eat, without being overly sweet, and helps slough off the dry skin and seal in moisture. Good thing I made a giant jar.
Sweet + Salty Body Scrub
– 1 1/2 cup sugar
– 1/2 cup coarse sea salt
– 1/4 cup coconut oil
– 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
– 2 tbsp honey
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. If it seems too dry, add a little more olive oil. Apply with a light touch to clean skin in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry. Store scrub in an airtight container — a 24 ounce, wide mouth mason jar works perfectly — and stir/shake before each use to redistribute oil.
