Lemon Body Scrub Ingredients
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 15-20 drops lemon essential oil
Climate will change the recipe because coconut oil is solid below 76 degree F. If you use coconut oil that is solid at room temperature in your home, add 1 tsp of filtered or bottle water to the mixture. However, if you use fractionated coconut oil, you will not need any water.
As you can see from the package, coconut oil is solid at 76 degrees. If you live in a warm climate or keep your home at 76 degrees or warmer, you will not need the water either. If this is a gift, you might want to add the water just in case.
