Smells like cookies

Recipe for DIY brown-sugar-and-coconut body scrub

You’ve got the brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract out to make pies and cookies for the holidays, so why not add one more ingredient—a little coconut oil—and give your skin a treat? Here’s a recipe for a skin-softening, brown-sugar-and-coconut body scrub (store in a container with a tight-fitting lid):

1 cup brown sugar, preferably organic

1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Melt coconut oil over low heat (if room temperature is lower than 76 degrees). Whisk together oil, sugar and cinnamon until well mixed; add vanilla and mix well.

Massage over damp skin and rinse.
