Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub
I love taking a time out for myself and getting a pedicure, with the lovely soaking, the massaging, the scrubbing. However, the busy life of a working mom often gets in the way of such indulgences. When I have some free time, I can recreate the feeling at home by making a DIY sugar scrub that does wonders for invigorating my tired legs and feet.
For this scrub, you will need:
½ cup white granulated sugar
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tsp grapeseed oil
Grated lemon zest
Lemon essential oil
In a microwave safe bowl, gently melt the coconut oil. Combine it with the sugar, and add the grapeseed oil. Blend in the lemon zest, and add 5-10 drops of lemon essential oil to fragrance the scrub to suit your senses.
Lovingly massage the scrub all over your feet, ankles, and all the way up to your knees before rinsing off. The sugar, not always the best for the inside of your body, does wonders for gently exfoliating the outside of your body. The coconut and grapeseed oils work as all-natural moisturizers on your dry, cracked heels, and the lemon scent will rev you up and make you want to get your feet moving again.
So take a small time out and enjoy.
