homemade coconut meat-sugar scrub for detoxing:
2 pounds sugar
1.5 cup African Shea butter ( slightly warmer than room temperature )
Blend with a hand beater in a large bowl until well combined and crumbly.
2 young coconuts ( meat only ), hard bark removed, chopped
1 tablespoon jojoba oil ( more if you have it )
1 cup virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup distilled water
Blend in a high speed blender until completely smooth.
Use the hand beater to combine the sugar mixture and the coconut mixture. Store in glass containers in the refrigerator.
I used brown sugar this time because that’s what was in the pantry. I prefer white sugar, the brown sugar is much stickier.
I suggest purchasing fresh sugar. The lumps in the brown sugar did not grind completely because the sugar was hard when I started.
To use: I use about 1/4 cup of the scrub my entire body each time I shower ( twice a day while fasting ). I scrub it on dry and then rinse with water ( no soap! - the soap removes the natural oils in the scrub ) The jojoba oil and coconut oil leave my skin super soft. No after show moisturizer is required, allowing my skin to breath without something covering it up.
It’s messy. I found applying the sugar scrub in the shower while I am dry the easiest and most effective way.
( I used the brown sugar scrub: I will be adding 2 pounds of white sugar to get more abrasion/exfoliation from the sugar. I like it thicker and drier. )
