Coconut oil is not just for cooking! It also is great for your skin. This SUPER easy body scrub combines skin-softening coconut oil with the exfoliation and relaxation of Epsom salts. Add in a touch of raspberry scent and you have a scrub that’s great for pampering yourself or giving to others.
Could you use almond extract instead of raspberry?
Absolutely! You can use whichever flavor extract you'd like. You can also use essential oils.
About how long does this need to set in freezer?
Just long enough for the the coconut oil to solidify.
Hi. I was just wondering does this body wash make your skin oily like some coconut oil products? Or does it wash off well 🙂
It's not a body wash. It's an oil scrub, so it exfoliates and moisturizes, but it doesn't clean. It will leave a barrier of coconut oil on your skin to keep the moisture in. Hope that helps.
If the oil stays on your skin, do the epsom salts also stay on your skin? That sounds uncomfortable, a bit like having salt and sand stick to your skin after a day at the beach.
I also wondered if the epsom salts would work for sore muscles when used in this way.
When you rinse your skin after using the scrub, the exfoliated skin and salt rinse off and the oil stays behind. I believe that you have to soak in the Epsom salts for them to relieve aches. I have a tutorial for a DIY salt soak here: http://madincrafts.com/handmade-gift-soaking-salt…
