DIY Sugar Body Scrub

Via the most recent GOOP newsletter, here is the recipe for the Sprout Wellness Sugar Body Scrub that you can make at home:

  • 1 cup organic demerara sugar (or any other coarse sugar will work)
  • 1-2 tsp organic unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 tsp organic shredded coconut
Mix shredded coconut and sugar in a small bowl, stir until blended. Heat coconut oil in a small pot just until melted. Pour coconut oil over sugar and shredded coconut, you'll notice it liquefies some of the sugar. With a fork or spoon, stir oil into the sugar mixture. It will start to spread. Continue until the sugar is all one consistency.
To use: Apply a small amount to areas you want to exfoliate and moisturize.

Seriously. I want to eat this.
