Crazy for Coconut

(SHORT POST! I have so much reading to do this weekend. Not that I’m complaining, mind you.)

Just so you all don’t think I was lying about trying stuff from that Coconut oil list

Several people suggested that I should try making a coconut oil and sugar body scrub.

And I did.

And I am DELICIOUS.

I didn’t get all fancy with essential oils to make it stink real purdy. Just white sugar and coconut oil. Mix. Take to shower. Scrub. Rinse.

It’s all pretty simple, really. And my skin felt soft and slippery after. Also made my bathtub slippery, so you’ll want to watch that.

Works well on lips as a pre-bedtime lip scrub, too. Takes make-up off along with dead skin. And of course, tastes LIKE SUGAR AND COCONUT OIL. So there’s that.

As for the cost… I don’t know what prices are like where you all live, but around here, sugar is cheaper than dirt, but coconut oil is pretty darned pricey. I cringe a little every time I use it for anything other than eating. Still, you don’t need a lot of it for this, and it is a nice treat.

Okay. That’s one more done. What’s next?

    I’m out of coconut oil. 😦 Since I prefer the unrefined version, I’m being too cheap to spring for the two large, organic, Costco jars for $24. I should just do it because the alternative is to whine about not having any.
