Coconut and Calendula Sugar Scrub Recipe

4 Materials
15 Minutes
I use sugar scrubs in the winter for my dry skin, and I use them in the winter for to brighten my dull skin. This easy recipe uses dried calendula from my garden.
I used a mortar and pestle to grind the herb. As you can see, I made most of a powder and left some leaves because I think it looks pretty in the recipe.

I also added coconut oil, cane sugar, and safflower oil to my scrub. You could use another oil, but I like how the safflower oil doesn't leave your skin greasy. You could even use olive oil, but your skin will be greasy after you use it.
Then I whipped some coconut oil until it was light and fluffy. I added safflower oil and whipped it again. Then I added the sugar and ground calendula and stirred it by hand.
Use about 1/4 of a cup of the scrub to scrub away dead skin cells and brighten your skin. You can use it all over your body, but do not use it on your face. The white sugar is too harsh for your sensitive facial skin.
