DIY Coconut Margarita Body Scrub (It's edible)
Grab a spoon
Let me start off by saying, If you want to eat this scrub – you can. All of the ingredients are edible. A splash of Tequila, Fresh Lime Rind, Sugar, and Coconut oil is ALL you need to completely indulge. This DIY Body Scrub beats store brands and you won’t get any additional additives or chemicals that aren’t necessary, and can cause further irritation to the skin.
DIY Edible Coconut Margarita Body Scrub
What you’ll need:
1 cup of Organic Coconut Oil. (I prefer this kind).
The rind of 1 lime (about 1 tablespoon)
1 to 1.5 cups of Organic Coconut Palm Sugar (similar to Brown Sugar)
1 tsp of Tequila (ehh, add a few more splashes if you wish. Maybe take a shot while you’re at it)
Large Mixing Bowl (DO NOT USE an Electric Mixer). You will want to use a Spoon.(Preferably wooden or plastic. If you use metal, you can heat up the oil as you mix causing it to be very watery I suppose at this point you might as well drink it)!
*Note: You may need to adjust the amount of sugar to Coconut Oil. If you want a more firmer scrub add more sugar. You can adjust the ratio depending on what you like.
Step 1: Add sugar and lime rind to the bowl gently stir.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, take the Coconut oil and add the Tequila. Gently mix.
Step 3: Once you’ve completed both steps then you’ll want to take the Coconut oil and add that to the sugar. Gently stir together (folding) until you have a uniform mix. (You can taste if you want- come on, taste it).
I keep this scrub in an airtight glass container. *NOTE: It is perfectly fine to keep this on the shelf, in the shower, etc. I have placed it in the fridge for a few days when I wasn’t using it. This will cause the scrub to firm up and become hard. If you choose this method, just leave out for a few hours and it will loosen up once it comes to room temperature.
That’s it! Now get your drink on, I mean - scrub on!
