The ingredients.

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
