Brr. It is already winter. Luckily this hand/body scrub with coconut/vanilla is amazing when the cold weather has taken it’s toll on your skin.
Maybe it’s about time you spend 2 minutes on yourself and spoil your hands and body at bit extra?
When living in California the weather never really gets that bad aka – and I love that! However the shorter and darker days leaves you with more time to treat yourself and your skin. This scrub is an easy and cheap way to help you get your smooth skin back.
Your entire body will benefit from this scrub, but be careful with the delicate skin of your face (which on the other hand loves pure coconut oil!). Your lips will also enjoy it and will be left nice and soft!
I have my scrub in a jar with a lid in the kitchen next to the sink, as this is also where I spend most of my time. Then it’s easier to remember to give myself a little self-indulgence while the kids are sitting down and maybe getting a cup of tea or a snack.
You probably also know the situations where you have been preparing onions, beets or have peeled potatoes? Try scrubbing your hands with this and you will be amazed how it removes both the smells and colorations.
Finally this hand and body scrub is also an excellent gift to a dear friend. I like to bring it when we are visiting friends for a nice dinner and drinks.
I simply just love this scrub, and hope you will like it too.
Try also my version of a fantastic lemon scrub. I am positive you will love it!
HAND/BODY SCRUB WITH COCONUT/VANILLA
How do I make this, you maybe asks?
Simply just mix it all together, store in a jar with a lid and enjoy the feeling of a new, softer skin!
If you are a bit like me, you don’t like to waste anything good.
Keep the vanilla pods instead of throwing them out, and use them to make your own vanilla sugar.
It’s a-ma-zing, and can be used on everything.
Try baking with it or add a bit of your homemade vanilla sugar next time you make your own vanilla yogurt. You will be amazed how much flavor there’s left in them pods!Print
