For the past year or so, I’ve been on a mission to remove as many processed ingredients from my family’s diet as possible. It’s scary to see what kinds of things can be hiding in the foods that we buy at the grocery store.
Same thing goes for skincare and beauty products. It recently occurred to me that if I don’t want to put something in my mouth and swallow it, why would I want to put it on my body. Our skin is our largest organ and covered in pores. Those pores absorb whatever we put on it.
We should be able to eat our body product without fear of getting sick… and that’s EXACTLY what I’m giving you today! A DIY Vanilla Honey Chocolate Sugar Scrub Recipe that smells so good you’ll want to eat it! And guess what??? You can. Each and every ingredient in it is safe for consumption and will leave your skin glowing, moisturized and beautiful!
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons raw cacao
How to make it
Step 1: In a large bowl combine all of your ingredients. Whisk with a hand-mixer or stand mixer. (Alternatively if you don’t have a mixer, melt your coconut oil first, then stir all of your ingredients together.)
