Orange Crush Sugar Scrub

Freckles and I started making home made sugar scrubs. It all started when I was gifted a lemon sugar scrub during Christmas, I realized how much I love it. I use it all the time. We decided to try our hand at making our own for personal use and gift giving, and maybe perhaps making some to sell at The Farmers Market. We picked up a huge jar of organic coconut oil from Costco, sugar and some essential oils. This is so easy to make and very addicting.

Our first batch we decided to make orange scrub. 
We also added in some fresh orange zest. MMMM! 
We love it so much we wanted to share the recipe. 

~Orange Crush Sugar Scrub~

1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil

1 1/2 – 2 1/2 cups Sugar
2-3 tbsp. orange zest
8-10 drops orange essential oil
Step one: In a glass bowl melt coconut oil for 30 seconds or until it becomes liquid.
Step two: Mix orange essential oil and orange zest with the melted coconut oil.
Step three: Add in sugar and mix until well combined. When making sugar scrub I recommend starting with 1 1/2 cups of sugar and adding 1/2 cup until you reach the consistency you enjoy the best. If you like a coarser scrub with not as much oil add 2 1/2 cups of sugar.
The coconut oil and orange infused scent makes this sugar scrub smells delightful. It’s the perfect sugar scrub for Spring and Summer; use it on your hands, feet, or whole body for silky skin

We are going to make many more flavors...
Will share soon!
