When I first started making scrubs, I used olive oil. But after trial and error, I have to say that coconut oil is one of the best body moisturizers I’ve ever used. I keep two jars at home; one in the kitchen and one in the medicine cabinet. It absorbs right into my skin with no oily residue (I sound like such a commercial, but it’s true). Regular sugar can be substituted for the turbinado if you have very sensitive skin. I prefer raw turbinado sugar because it has the most texture for exfoliating and makes my skin feel amazing. And I’m starting to see forum discussions about anti-aging properties in sugar but I have no idea if they’re scientifically accurate. With regards to fragrance, any essential oil will work. My favorites have always been eucalyptus and rosemary because I find them refreshing and invigorating. But you could go with rose, lavender, even vanilla… whatever you fancy.
Rosemary Sugar Scrub
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1/3 cup
1/3 cup turbinado sugar 3 tablespoons coconut oil 4-10 drops rosemary oil (or essential oil of your choice)
Measure the sugar into a mixing bowl. Melt coconut oil for 15-30 seconds to liquify it. Stir the oil into the sugar. Stir in essential oil. Store in the shower. Heat from the shower will keep the oil liquified during use.
I love sugar scrubs but they can be pricey. I'm going to give this a try and let you all know how it went.

OmegaMan: I've been reading Natural News for years, and I'm appalled at how much of an anti-Semite Mike Adams has become! He's extremely anti-Israel, and is calling her a terrorist state. 😡 I wonder how HE would react if his wife was raped and his kids burned

OmegaMan: alive! Yet he calls himself a "Christian." 😡😡😡 I liked that site for news and especially for articles on health, but I'm done - I have no desire to give any support to someone like him.

Honoria: Who is that woman calling a liar?

ExquisiteGerbil: Omegaman, I read Natural News from time to time and although Mike Adams claims to be a Christian, I haven't seen any real evidence of it. He's more into prepping and bringing back President Trump; he never mentions Jesus. My guess is he's NAR.

PrisonerOfHope: Hard to say with unhinged people, Honoria, but I suspect she means me for saying someone with the same ISP tried to join under different names. What people like her don't realize is that we get the ISP address for everyone who applies for membership, and

PrisonerOfHope: twice now I've gotten someone with the same ISP address attempt to join under different user names. I've also had people try and join who, when their ISP address was run through a spam checker, had dozens of entries! 😡
