Let’s face it, we all deserve a spa day! We can’t all get out and enjoy the full spa experience right now, but that shouldn’t stop us from feeling our best inside and out.
One simple way to get our skin summer ready is the use of exfoliant to get rid of our dead skin cells. Why spend the money on one when you can whip up a customized body exfoliator with items you probably already have in your kitchen.
Adding CBD to the equation gives your sugar scrub a potential boost of healthy skin benefits. Feel refreshed and ready to take on anything summer has to offer with your own CBD infused recipe!
What you need-
1-2 cups of brown sugar
1 cup of solid (but soft) coconut oil
Vanilla extract (just a couple drops)
Essential oils (your choice)
Using a double boiler method combine the CBD isolate and the coconut oil
Combine the brown sugar, cooled coconut oil, vanilla extract, and essential oil. Stir until completely combined. If your mixture looks like it is separating too much simply place in the freezer to solidify it.
Store in an airtight container and it will last for weeks. It will look delicious but don’t eat it if you used essential oils in the mixture. Separation is natural, especially when the coconut oil warms up so you may need to stir before use, especially if you store it in the shower.
You can control how much CBD you use in this recipe. In the step by step video we used 250mg. Read more about determining the ratio of CBD to oil.
