I love using melted coconut oil in my DIY beauty recipes. Coconut oil feels wonderful on your skin and is so soothing and moisturizing.

Use it on your body (not face) in the shower. Scrubs can get a little messy so using them in the shower is the easiest way to ensure your bathroom doesn’t get scrub everywhere.

If it’s warm where you live, you could also use it outside with a tub of warm water.

Because this scrub contains edible ingredients, you’ll want to store it in the fridge and keep it up to one month. Use it right away. You’ll love it!
