Here is what you need:
- 1/2 tbs 100% Jojoba Oil (it is very good on hair and skin)
- 1 tsb Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- A dash of cinnamon (you can add more if you would like a stronger smell)
- 1/2 cup of dark brown cane sugar
First things first, you have to melt the coconut oil since coconut oil is solid. It is not a liquid kind of oil like Olive oil. Melt 1 tbs of coconut oil, you can either use a microwave (10-15 seconds) or you can use a stove. After you have melted your coconut oil, you are going to let it rest while you mix your other ingredients.
On a clean bowl, you are going to put in the 1/2 cup of sugar and add your cinnamon. Give it a little toss and add the 1/2 tbs of Jojoba oil and toss again. Now you can add the Coconut oil and give it another toss and your done! You have your own homemade scrub! You can place it on a clean plastic container with a lid (make sure you cover it up, to avoid bacteria from getting in the sugar scrub) or if you want to make it pretty, you can do what I did.
Buy a small glass jar (I use a 4oz jar) and some ribbons. Get some crazy glue or a glue gun to attached the ribbon to the jar. If you buy the pack of 12 (jars) it comes with the labels and you can label your glass. Another option is that you can make it yourself on the computer and print it out. I bought the 12 pack jar because I was making extras so it was a little easier since it came with the labels.
