Nothing says summer like a refreshing citrus cocktail. Inspired by the minty drink, this mojito sugar scrub is sure to get you beach-body ready by gently exfoliating skin:
1 cup Zulka (large granule) sugar
Zest of 3 limes
10-12 mint leaves, finely chopped
½ cup fractionated coconut oil
3-4 drops of lime oil, optional*
1-2 drops peppermint oil, optional**
- In a small bowl, combine the sugar and lime zest. Add the mint leaves and mix well.
- Add coconut oil, lime oil, and peppermint oil. Stir well to combine.
- Spoon or scoop into a glass jar.
To use: In the shower, scoop about 2 tablespoons of sugar scrub and gently massage the scrub over your body in a circular motion. Rinse your body thoroughly to remove any remnants of sugar.
*Do not expose the applied area(s) to the sun for 24 to 48 hours after application
**If you have broken, irritated, or sensitive skin, do not use
