Here are the ingredients to make coconut lime raw sugar scrub:
Why do you need to use raw sugar instead of regular sugar to make a sugar scrub?
The key to this scrub is in the sugar. I have tried scrubs using granulated and brown sugar and they are nice, but using Raw Sugar definitely gives you a deeper exfoliating scrub.
So what is Raw Sugar (aka Turbinado)? Turbinado sugar is less-processed and less-refined then other sugars. It is sugar derived from natural sugar cane, it is brown in color and has larger crystals than granulated or brown sugar.
Where can you buy raw sugar to make a raw sugar scrub? At your local grocery store. Seriously. Look down your baking aisle right next to your granulated, brown and artificial sugars. This is not expensive and has a ton of great uses! Or you can always purchase it from HERE.
Doesn't it just look delicious!?
Coconut Oil is also available at most local grocery stores or it is available for purchase HERE.
To make your scrub you will simply mix the above ingredients by spoon or hand.
If your coconut oil is in a solid state, you can carefully soften it by placing it in the microwave for about 1 minute.
I juiced a fresh lime for my scrub! Yum! I love citrus scents and lime is one of my all-time favorites!
