Coconut Oil Body Scrub Recipes to Rejuvenate Your Skin


Adding coconut oil body scrub to your beauty regime makes your skin feel smooth, silky and shiny. All you would need is only a handful of ingredients to make your own natural body scrub using coconut oil.

Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids with natural antibacterial and antifungal properties that leave your skin deeply moisturized besides promoting healthy skin. Use body scrubs thrice a week to exfoliate dead cells and rejuvenate your skin.

However, make sure the coconut oil you are going to use for making body scrub is not hot so as to prevent the other ingredients from melting. You can use liquid coconut oil. If using solid coconut oil then blend it in a blender until the oil turns soft and creamy before adding all the other ingredients and combine with a spoon.

We have shared some great coconut oil body scrub recipes you will enjoy making! Feel free to add your favorite essential oil while making the recipes.

Note: To stay on the safer side do remember to clean the tub after using the body scrub. This will ensure traces of oil are removed from the bathtub and avoid any slippage.

Also, coconut oil is highly comedogenic so if your skin is prone to breakouts, it is best to avoid using coconut oil body scrub on your face.
