Dry, winter skin can take its toll, but soothing beauty products can be expensive. After purchasing a sugar body scrub for my youngest daughter, I decided the next time around, we'll make some. That's when I found this recipe from the blog, Food for My Family. The recipe is simple to make and perfect for just about any skin type. Here's what you need:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon ginger, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup cold-pressed oil (tea seed, grape seed, sunflower, or almond oil)
3/4 cup granulated or turbinado sugar
1/4 cup kosher salt
1-4 drops essential oil
