Thank you Barlean’s for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all opinions are my own.
You guys–I haven’t shared a sugar scrub recipe in forever. Today I’m excited to share this Vanilla Sugar Scrub recipe with you. Perfect for a little self care at home! They are one of my favorite go-to gifts to make and give for any occasion. I’ve made them as a bridal shower favor, teacher and neighbor gifts. I also make them for myself.
Nothing keeps your skin more hydrated them a homemade sugar scrub. I kept this one very simple with just 3 ingredients! The star ingredient is Barleans Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.
A little more about coconut oil in case your not familiar with it.
Savor the tropical aroma and light, sweet-nutty flavor of Barlean’s high quality Virgin Organic Coconut Oil. As delicious as it is versatile, it is great for baking and stir-frying and for curries or other dishes that benefit from a slight coconut flavor. It is also effective as a skin moisturizer, make-up remover and hair conditioner. Barlean’s oil comes exclusively from certified-organic plantations in the Philippines where coconut palms grow naturally without pesticides. Coconut oil does not contain any trans fat (the unhealthy kind).
- ½ cup Coconut Oil, melted
- 1 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
- Large Bowl
- Silicone Spatula
- Glass Jar
- Heat the Coconut Oil until melted.
- Combine the coconut oil, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Mix until well incorporated.
- Transfer to glass jars and seal tightly. Use in the shower on your hands, knees, elbows and feet as often as needed.
Be careful if using on your feet–they will be extremely slippery!
