Make your own Sugar Body Scrub

I can always rely on my mom for great health and beauty tips. If at all possible, she will opt to use natural products and I love this homemade recipe she came up with recently for a 'Coconut & Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub'. This is the perfect pamper product for exfoliating / moisturizing and smells scrumptious enough to eat! (which you can!)

x 1/2 cup coconut oil
x 1/2 cup brown sugar (the less refined the better, preferably dark brown sugar)
x 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Mix your three ingredients and find an empty jar to spoon the mixture into. To use, rub the sugar scrub on your skin in the shower, massage and rinse. Tip: My clever mum found a piece of scrap paper to match her bathroom decor that she turned into a label (covered with clear tape for waterproofing) with a little ribbon tied to the top. Not only functional but pretty enough to leave out too.
