Homemade cinnamon sugar scrub
Having a daughter with eczema has made me think about products that we put on our skin in general.
Finding natural alternatives isn't difficult and can be cheaper in the long run, not to mention gentler on your skin.
Coconut oil works wonders on my daughter's skin so I have been experimenting with ways to use this ingredient for my own pampering session.
Cinnamon is one of my favourite ingredients
1 ½ cups
½ cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
½ -1 cup granulated sugar (brown or white)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
You will need
A mixing bowl
A large spoon
An airtight container or jar
Add the coconut oil and half of the sugar to a bowl and mix well (Coconut oil is solid but pliable just above room temperature. You may want to gently heat if its very cold).
Gradually add the cinnamon. You may find that just half a teaspoon is enough, or more if you want a stronger scent.
Add more sugar if a coarser texture is required.
Transfer to your container. Your sugar scrub is ready to use.
When showering, add 1 tablespoon to damp skin, massage and rinse thoroughly. The sugar exfoliates whilst the coconut moisturises your skin leaving it feeling silky smooth.
The scrub can be stored in a cool dry place for up to 2 months.
Coconut oil is a good base for many sugar scrubs
Experiment with your favourite smelling essential oils and give your skin a treat. If you are allergic to coconut swap it with olive oil.
