    Lime, Vanilla and Coconut Sugar Scrub

    Last time I went to Fiji I purchased the most amazing coconut sugar scrub. It was beautiful and left my skin so smooth and moisturised. Amazingly, there’s not much to the recipe and every time I use this in the shower I feel like I’m back on holidays! Here’s how to do it......

    ¼ cup of unfractunated coconut oil.
    ½ teaspoon of premium quality vanilla essence
    30 drops of lime essential oil
    Most of a 175ml jar full or raw sugar (approx. 1.25 cups)

    1. Add coconut oil to a mixing bowl and sit it in the sink resting in a bath of hot water until the coconut oil becomes liquid. 
    2. Add vanilla and lime oil.
    3. Using your jar as a measure, fill it almost to the top with raw sugar.
    4. Tip the sugar into the mixing bowl and combine ingredients then scoop into your jar.
    5. Pop in the fridge for 5 minutes to set your scrub. 
    This recipe has a very gentle fragrance, if you prefer your products to have a stronger scent, feel free to add more oil and vanilla. 
    Keep your gorgeous scrub on display in your shower ready to use when you want to treat yourself. x
