Okay, so maybe this isn’t a food thing exactly, but it’s made of things that are food.

After my last jar of overpriced body scrub ran out, I tried to look for a less expensive brand that wasn’t almond oil-based. Even though my allergy is an oral one, I’m still wary about rubbing myself with something I’m allergic to, you know?

cheeni sugar - What to Make this Weekend: Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub

After finding almost nothing, I decided to just make my own damn scrub, and wow—why have I not been doing this all along?

All you need: 

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • A few drops essential oil (optional but delightful—I used lavender)

Mix everything together and store in a resealable, waterproof container. My skin hasn’t been this happy in a long time, and it’s awesome not to have to make my wallet sad for that.

Enjoy!
