Homemade coconut & lime body scrub

I'm always in the mood for coconut, whether it is to eat, drink, wear as perfume or used in beauty products. 
The other day whilst I was having a 'way too healthy' breakfast (see here), I decided I would use the breakfast props and indulge in some DIY beauty therapy! This recipe would probably have sounded even more delicious if I had used sugar instead of salt (for the scrub effect) but Epsom salts have great benefits on the skin.

1/2 cup coconut shavings
1 cup Epsom salt
1 large lime
Coconut oil

*In a bowl mix the Epsom salt and coconut shavings 
*Add a splash of lime juice and its zest followed by the coconut oil
*Adjust the ingredients till you have reached the consistency desired  


  1. This actually looks good enough to eat!!!! Love the idea of a homemade scrub & I'm sure it smells heavenly when you're applying it.
    Have a fabulous weekend ME xoxo

  2. I love coconut as well. My sister is good about making homemade skinscare and scrubs like this, and this one seems quite easy, so I will have to try it out. Coconut is so good for you, my family has used it for decades! Great DIY, thanks so much for sharing.

  3. Yum! This sounds delish! I bet it makes a great scrub!

  4. This sounds divine and I love that it's all natural! Thanks for sharing!
