Make Your Own Moisturizing Exfoliate

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Bathroom

It doesn’t take a pricey trip to the spa to get a good moisturizing exfoliate. A coconut oil and sea salt scrub is very easy to make and only requires three ingredients; all of which can be found in the grocery store. This particular scrub has the ability to moisturize as you exfoliate. Use the scrub once a week for silky smooth skin, with no added preservatives or chemicals.

This recipe is wonderful if you are attempting to incorporate coconut oil into your daily life. For an original moisturizer, you can mix only coconut oil and olive oil.  However, you can also add sea salt to the mix to make an inexpensive product that could serve two purposes; exfoliate and moisturize. No more expensive exfoliating creams!  This concoction works much better than anything you can purchase!

What You Will Need:

1 ½ Cup of Organic Coconut Oil

½ Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Cup of Sea Salt


Mix all three ingredients in a large mixing bowl by hand. Store in a large mason jar or simply a plastic container.

Use the mixture once a week in the shower after you cleanse with soap.

Note: You can also add drops of aromatic oils such as peppermint, lavender or lemon to your mix.  Start with a few drops – these oils are quite concentrated!
