  • *Add a scent (optional): Cinnamon or Vanilla Essence, Coffee granules

METHOD

  1. Grind your oats in a blender/food processor (*or use whole oats) and mix with the rest of the ingredients in a bowl or a glass jar.
  2. To apply, wash and then rub the scrub gently on your skin in circular motions. (It’s good to turn off the shower while doing this to save water.)
  3. Rinse off well, et voila!

• Tip •

Replace some of the coconut oil with a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or Almond Oil.

Know the difference between the Odourless Coconut Oil and the Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – make sure you use the Virgin oil for your body/skin. The odourless one is better for cooking.
