Lime – If you asked me to describe happy in a smell, this is it! This scent makes me feel motivated, thinking about summer, feeling healthy and instantly uplifted. (I’m smiling just thinking about it!)
Ginger – A nostalgic, relaxing, spicy warming scent
Lime and ginger complement one another, add them together and you have an explosion of deliciousness! Have you ever made a pad thai? Then you’ll know what I mean.
Sugar – a fantastic exfoliator. (You can always use a sea salt but sugar is more gentle for daily use)
Coconut oil – Investing in a pot of raw coconut oil is totally worth it! It has multiple uses from cooking to using as a moisturising makeup remover.
Zest 2 limes and 1 piece ginger, melt a couple of heaped tablespoons of raw coconut oil and add once oil has cooled. Add enough sugar, it shouldn’t be a runny consistency
If you don’t have a pot then use a plastic sealable tub. Store in the fridge and use within a week,
You can always add a little essential oil to enhance the scent further.
This works out quite cost effective and takes minutes to make. If you don’t have time then here are some scrubs I have tried and loved –
