Grapefruit Body Scrub

Now that spring has arrived I was looking for a nice fresh scrub to use in the shower. I came across a whole bunch of recipes on pinterest for grapefruit scrubs and had to do some experiments (I know its hard work but someone has to do it :>)

This was the recipe that I liked the best, however you can increase or reduce the amount of sugar depending on how course you want the scrub to be. I love the scent of grapefruit so I added some essential oil as well as the zest. If you want the scrub to last longer you can omit the zest and just use the essential oil.


½ cup Pure Naturally Virgin Coconut Oil, solid
¼ cup white sugar (granulated)
1  grapefruit, zest only
10 drops grapefruit essential oil 


Whisk all the ingredients together until combined and put into little jars. In the warmer weather the oil will melt and the sugar will go to the bottom of the jar, shaking it before use will mix it up again. However if you prefer the creamier feel then keep the jar in the fridge and bring it out about an hour before you want to use it so it’s at room temperature.
