Winter months have us yearning for warm beaches and all the aromas associated with a vacation. Unable to hop on a plane post haste, we’ve whipped up (literally) a Coconut Lime & Mint Sugar Scrub to turn our shower into a mini vacation.
-Coconut oil may be linked to many potential benefits for skin, including reducing inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and happy!
-Lime essential oilis one of our favorite EOs for skin care. It is a natural antioxidant, giving it the ability to help to remove free radicals that damage cells, including those of the skin. It also helps reduce signs of aging such as fine lines, sun spots, and wrinkles. Along with its added benefit of being astringent, this essential oil helps keep the skin firm.
-Peppermint essential oil is an excellent choice if you are trying to brighten your skin! Added to help give you that healthy radiant glow!
Here is what you will need…
-1 cup sugar
-1/2 cup solid unrefined Coconut oil
-1 tablespoon lime zest
-20 drops Lime essential oil
-5 drops Peppermint essential oil
-wide mouth mason jar
-large mixing bowl
Mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl with a hand mixer till combined and spoon into the jar.
Enjoy. Use anytime you need a little extra “vacation time” and be whisked away.
