Recipe for Lime & Mint Sugar Scrub



Recipe for Lime & Mint Sugar Scrub

This is a bit of a girlie blog I’m afraid, but men can use it too!

As it’s summer and limbs
are on show, a good shower
scrub is essential.

I am a huge fan of Soap & Glory Products but after a spectacularly horrific garage bill we are tightening our belts quite considerably. So, when my gorgeous sugar scrub ran out, I decided to be uber-sensible and make my own. I (and secretly my other half) love it!



Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients for Lime & Mint Sugar Scrub

  • Coconut oil 110g (4oz) (available from Holland & Barratt)
  • Granulated sugar 110g (4oz)
  • Lime 1, zest and juice
  • Spearmint or peppermint oil 10 drops

In a saucepan, heat coconut oil gently until melted. Stir in sugar, lime zest and juice, and oil.

Decant into a jar and store in the fridge.

Use twice a week for invigorated and super-soft skin.

Tip: You could use olive oil in place of the coconut oil (it doesn’t need to be heated). Simply add enough to the sugar to make a thick paste.
