I am a huge fan of coconut and lime and when you combine them magic truly happens. This coconut lime sugar scrub screams sunshine and will gently exfoliate your skin to get it spring ready! Keep by the sink to keep your hands hydrated after you do the dishes, or pop some on in the shower for a full body exfoliation to help hydrate your skin and make it feel silky soft.

What I love about this coconut lime sugar scrub is that it is so quick to make and it’s an awesome moisturizer and exfoliant for the skin. You can find a cute jar and ribbon and give this as a gift for Mother’s Day, or as a birthday gift for a loved one. It is affordable to make and truly leaves your skin silky and smooth.

Coconut oil is extremely popular in and out of the kitchen. This tropical dream offers therapeutic properties that are making more and more people reach for coconut oil at the store. Coconut oil is wonderful for moisturizing your skin, and when you add the sugar it transforms into a super powerful exfoliator.
Coconut Oil Works For All Skin Types
Coconut Oil is great for dry skin and oily skin! That is one thing that I love about using in in this sugar scrub. You can have anyone use this and reap the benefits.
When you have dry skin, your skin is lacking oils, and that can leave your skin flaky and rough. When you use oils like coconut oil, it can help restore the correct lipid barrier, locking in moisture, which reduces water loss. It will leave your skin feeling hydrated without that greasy feel.
For those who have oily skin, when you apply this coconut lime sugar scrub, it helps exfoliate your skin and does great at breaking down and dissolving the excess oils you are producing.
So, whether you have oily or dry skin this sugar scrub will work for you.
Coconut & Lime Sugar Body Scrub Recipe
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil
- 1 cup white granulated sugar
- 10 drops lime essential oil
If your coconut oil is too hard to stir, warm it in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds. You want it soft enough to stir but still solid.
Combine coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil, sugar, and lime essential oil.
