Organic Orange Creamsicle Body Scrub

By now, I am pretty certain you know that I am obsessed with body scrubs. Body scrubs were something that I had actually never used before I started making my own...I guess I never got the point. Now, however, I am hooked.

This scrub has quickly become a favorite for both myself and my daughter. The scent takes me back to summer when, as a child, the ice cream truck would roll past and my treat of choice was always an orange creamsicle. It smells good enough to eat and luckily..IT IS SAFE ENOUGH TO EAT-although I don't advise it!

This scrub can be made in a matter of minutes and makes a perfect gift for yourself or someone else. I make mine with all organic ingredients BUT you can certainly use conventional for your scrub! The sugar will gently scrub away dead skin while the coconut oil nourishes and leaves your skin the softest it has ever been! It is a high quality product so you will use such a small amount to do your entire body.

  • 3/4 cup Organic Sugar
  • 8-10 drops of Orange Essential Oil (Or squeezed orange juice)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Zest of An Orange
  • 1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil
That is seriously it! There really is no trick to it! Toss it all in a bowl and mix it up! The orange zest is just for color and can easily be omitted based upon what you have handy! Don't worry, the coconut oil may solidify BUT will melt in your hands with your body warmth after you take a small spoonful.

I am a pretty - go with the flow type of gal so don't be hung up on the ingredients! No coconut oil, sub olive oil! No essential oil? Squeeze in an orange! This is just a template!

If you prefer to buy it premade...check out my ETSY SHOP!
