doTERRA Coconut Sugar Scrub

Ready for something new in my essential oil series? Today, I've got a super easy and luxurious recipe for you - Coconut Sugar Scrub with your choice of essential oil! Mmmm!

doTERRA Coconut Sugar Scrub
Yields approximately 12 ounces or 3, 4 ounce mason jelly jars
Inspired by a scrub I made at the favorite things party this sweet gal hosted  


Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon essential oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3, 4 ounce mason jelly jars 
Directions
  • In a glass bowl, microwave the coconut oil for 1 minute or until thoroughly melted.
  • Add your essential oil and gently whisk with a fork. Mix in sugar.
  • While your scrub is still warm spoon into each mason jar. Your scrub is done!
  • Now, the best part - keep your scrub near the bath and it works absolute wonders when shaving your legs. Scrub your legs well, shave, scrub again, and shave a second time. Your legs will have never felt smoother!
I made two batches of scrub for Christmas gifts this year - one with eucalyptus and another with peppermint. Both smell oh so fresh! I think I'm going to try another batch near Mother's Day with doTERRA's Serenity which is a blend of lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, sandalwood and vanilla bean. Yes, it is divine as it sounds :)

Wonderful idea! I've never made a scrub with coconut oil, but I've used straight coconut oil as a lotion before and it feels amazing so I'm sure it would feel awesome as a scrub.
