Sister & Co. beauty: Pomegranate and basil sugar scrub

 

This is a great invigorating body scrub, perfect for spring and getting rid of dead winter skin. 100% natural it smells just as good and works just as well if not better than shop-bought scrubs and exfoliators. 

The scrub uses coconut oil and sweet almond oil to moisturize, sugar to exfoliate, and fresh basil and lime oil to energize and uplift. Pomegranate brings a powerful dose of Vitamin C (one pomegranate contains 48% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C) which encourages formation of collagen - responsible for making healthy and stronger skin. Pomegranates are also rich in antioxidants which not only nourish the skin but prevent damage caused by free radicals in the air.

All you need:

  • 1/3 cup raw coconut oil 
  • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tbsp sweet almond oil 
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds  
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil leaves                                                                          
  • 5 drops of lime essential oil                                                                                                                                                                                                        All you need to do: blend the coconut oil and white sugar in a food processor. Mix together on low speed until a thick paste is formed. Add the remaining ingredients, mix on low until incorporated and then turn the speed up to medium for about 10 seconds, or until mixture is well blended and fluffy. Store in an air-tight container, in the fridge in warm weather.
