This is a great invigorating body scrub, perfect for spring and getting rid of dead winter skin. 100% natural it smells just as good and works just as well if not better than shop-bought scrubs and exfoliators.
The scrub uses coconut oil and sweet almond oil to moisturize, sugar to exfoliate, and peppermint oil to energize and uplift. Pomegranate brings a powerful dose of Vitamin C (one pomegranate contains 48% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C) which encourages formation of collagen - responsible for making healthy and stronger skin. Pomegranates are also rich in antioxidants which not only nourish the skin but prevent damage caused by free radicals in the air.
All you need:
1/2 cup Sister & Co. Coconut Oil
3 tbsp granulated white sugar
1 tbsp sweet almond oil (available at all good health shops - alternatively just use additional coconut oil)
2 tbsp pomegranate seeds optional - 10 drops peppermint essential oil (available at all good health shops) or alternatively 1 tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves All you need to do: place the firm coconut oil and white sugar in a food processor. Mix together on low speed, until a thick paste is formed. Add the pomegranate, sweet almond oil and peppermint oil/mint leaves, mix on low until incorporated and then turn the speed up to medium for about 20 seconds, or until mixture is well blended and fluffy. Store in an air-tight container, in the fridge in warm weather. Will last for up to a week.
