Coconut. Caramel. Chocolate. Sounds like the makings of a samoa cookie recipe, but this is even better — a homemade body scrub that leaves skin feeling silky, smells like dessert, and actually puts sugar to good use.
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup solid coconut oil
- 2 tbs. cocoa powder
- A couple of drops of vanilla, coconut, or almond extract
To make: Combine all ingredients in a bowl until well mixed (it will have the consistency of batter). Transfer to a jar or other container of choice.
To use: Slather on skin, rub in, and rinse off.
