Coconut Rose Essential Oil Body Scrub
Summertime means heat, exposed limbs, lots of sunscreen, and lots of sun—a recipe that can leave skin feeling a bit clogged and parched. Fortunately that’s nothing a quick sugar scrub can’t fix, and this one is definitely up to the task. A handful of rose petals, some sugar, and some coconut oil will buff off that coating of sunscreen and hydrate summer skin in no time!

If you're a fan of sugar body scrubs, and love making them from scratch, you're going to love this recipe. The Coconut Rose Body Scrub smells absolutely amazing too! 

Coconut Rose Body Scrub

1 cup fresh rose petals (loose, not packed)
1/4 cup white sugar
20g | 0.7oz virgin coconut oil (approximately 1.5 tbsp)
10g | 0.35oz Turkey red oil or Polysorbate 20 (solubilizer) (approximately 2.5 tsp)

Place the rose petals and sugar in a small food processor (like the kind they sell for making dips) or blender (a Magic Bullet sort of thing would be a good option). I recommend a smaller vessel rather than a larger one since we’re not making much; I find this amount of ingredients gets lost in a full-sized blender or food processor, so you’ll need to stop and scrape down the sides much more frequently (you definitely can still use a big ‘un if that’s what you’ve got, just don’t forget to scrape ‘er down!). 

If you don’t have roses growing in your garden, you can try using other flowers that you do have, like lilacs or daisies or even dandelions! You could also raid your herbal DIY stash and blend in dried flowers and herbs, like lavender or calendula.

Melt the coconut oil and Turkey Red Oil and drizzle it over top of the rose petals and sugar. Pulse until you have an even mixture (the petal bits should be small enough to easily wash down your drain without clogging it).

To use, massage the scrub into your skin and rinse it off. The Turkey Red Oil will help the oil emulsify with the water and rinse down your drain without thoroughly greasing up your tub, but it’s still a good idea to wipe your tub down afterwards to avoid any near-death experiences.

Because this recipe contains fresh rose petals (which contain water), it’s best to use it all up straight away—I find this makes just enough to do a thorough full-body scrub. If you’d like to extend the shelf life of the scrub, use half a cup of dried rose petals instead of fresh (that way you won’t be introducing any water to the mix).

Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a great skin softener and helps you do away with dry and hard skin conditions. Simply take some coconut oil on your palms, rub your palms against each other once or twice and then on your face, hands, or wherever you want to see the moisturizing effect.Coconut oil is also good for hardened and cracked feet, which may happen due to excessive cold or strenuous work while standing on your feet. The cracks in your feet will not vanish, but your feet will become softer within days if you apply coconut oil to the affected area. As an exfoliant, including coconut oil as an agent with other exfoliating or grainy materials like salts and sugars can vastly improve the effects. You will successfully scrape off excess dead skin and clean out whatever substances have blocked the pores without leaving the skin feeling irritated. The natural soothing nature of the oil combines with the grainy, exfoliating material perfectly, and leaves your skin with an even color, closed pores, and a soft texture.
