Tutorial: Lime, Mint, Coconut and Sugar Body Scrub

14 December 2015, by Forrest Chase

Lime, Mint, Coconut and Sugar Body Scrub

Inspired by the summery flavour of a mojito, this lush-smelling body scrub is literally good enough to eat. It is super-simple to make and leaves skin feeling soft and moisturised. Make it your go-to stocking stuffer this Christmas!


Lime, Mint, Coconut and Sugar Body Scrub

Supplies:

  • White sugar
  • Limes
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Coconut oil
  • Glass jam jars with lids, string, washi tape, popsicle sticks for packaging

Method:

  1. Fill your jar ¾ full with sugar.
  2. Add the zest of one lime and 3 finely chopped mint leaves.
  3. Fill the jar the rest of the way with coconut oil. Emulsifying the oil first in the microwave for 10 seconds or in a warm water bath will make it easier to combine.
  4. Stir the ingredients in the jar until fully combined. Wipe any mess from the top of the jar and put the lid on.
  5. Package your jars by tying popsicle sticks on with string and decorating with washi tape. Using removable tags is recommended as adhesive labels can deteriorate in the shower.

Variations: Change up your packaging colour scheme and make this body scrub for bridal shower or baby shower gifts.
