A few months ago I blogged about how much I like my homemade Coconut Scrub with Tea Tree Oil. And I still love it. Over the summer, I have experimented with different ingredients I could add and found that I love cucumber in my water as well as in my scrub. The cucumber in the scrub is cooling and soothes the skin. The oil (I used olive oil since the scrub needs to be stored in the fridge and coconut oil hardens in the cold) hydrates the skin and makes it soft. I also added tea tree oil because it’s so refreshing.
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tbsp olive oil
5 drops of tea tree oil (optional)
1. Puree the cucumber in a blender until it’s a liquid.
2. Add the sugar, olive oil, and tea tree oil (optional). If the sugar is dissolving, add more.
3. Stir everything together and store in a container.
It’s important to keep it refrigerated so it stays nice and fresh.
