I love this combination of coconut oil and peppermint. The coconut oil leaves your skin feeling soft and glowing, while the peppermint is invigorating and uplifting. It can help reduce fatigue and boost mood your senses and will also actually promote mental clarity.
How to Use
It is best to use the palm of your hands and the peace fingers to apply exfoliating scrubs. Some people swear by mitts or sponges made of loofah fibers for exfoliation, but I prefer to use bare hands.
Use gentle pressure so as not to aggravate the skin. Use repetitive circular strokes to massage the scrub over the area needing exfoliation. Again, keep your touch gentle; a little pressure goes a long way since the sugar is already mildly abrasive.
After exfoliating you’ll want to rinse off the area with warm water.
Gently dry the face with a soft clean cloth, patting dry instead of rubbing and pulling at the newly-exposed skin. Be gentle!
You will need:
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 10-12 drops of peppermint essential oil
Coconut oil is often found with cooking oils and is usually in a solid state at room temperature. Mix the sugar and coconut oil in a glass bowl and apply in the shower or bath.
Makes a beautiful gift idea for anytime of the year.
