🔸️ ½ cup coconut oil
🔸️ 1½ – 2 cups sugar
🔸️ tbs peppermint extract
🔸️ 1 drop green food coloring
➡️ Warm up the coconut oil into liquid
➡️ Add sugar
➡️ Start by adding 1½ cups sugar to the oil, along with the peppermint extract and green food coloring.
➡️ Mix until ingredients are well combined and food coloring is evenly distributed.
➡️ If mixture is too wet, add another ½ cup sugar until scrub is to desired consistency.
➡️ Spoon scrub into air-tight containers (such as a mason jar) and decorate with twine or ribbon😊🎁
Pomegranates have been cultivated since ancient times, and science has found surprising benefits for this amazing fruit😊. Research shows that the seeds may slow aging, halt the spread of cancer and improve heart health.
What’s more, this tasty treat is low in calories 😉 (only around 105 for an average-sized fruit) in addition to being loaded with nutrients. High in vitamin C and potassium, the bright red fruit also boasts high levels of antioxidants.
And if you eat the seeds rather than drinking the tangy juice, you’ll have added fiber in your diet as well 😉
🔸️ 2-3 tablespoons of honey 🍯
🔸️ 1/2 cup crushed pomegranate seeds with the juice
🔸️ 1/2 cup white sugar
➡️ Start by cutting open the fruit. Make a slit with a sharp knife and then pry the halves open. You can do this in the sink or in a bowl of water to prevent the deep dark red juice from splattering and potentially staining your clothes or counter 😉
➡️ Once the fruit is open, start picking the seeds off. Again, you can do this while the fruit is submerged in a bowl of water. The seeds will sink and the white fleshy part floats making it easy to separate.
➡️ Pour the honey into a bowl and add the seeds. Crush the seeds with a wooden spoon. Add the sugar and stir. You can use more sugar if you want a thicker scrub.
You can either leave the crushed seeds in the scrub or remove them after you’ve juice them.
Time for a lovely strawberry scrub! ❤
➡️ Take 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of coconut oil
➡️ Mash frozen strawberries into dust (best part 😅)
➡️ Mix it with brown sugar and coconut oil, put it in a mason jar and keep it up to 1 month
You can add a tiny bit of vanilla exctract too 🤗
You will Need:
2 tablespoons bath salt
2 teaspoons oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
2-3 tablespoons water 💧
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make a paste.
Apply the paste to your feet and scrub for 10 minutes 😁
Wash and follow it up with a moisturizer 😍
How It Works
Oatmeal has a coarse texture, which makes it a great exfoliator. It also softens the skin on your feet and soothes minor rashes and itches. Combining it with bath salt and baking soda enhances its exfoliating effect 🤗
