Moisturizing body scrub


1/2 cup liquid glycerin
1/2 cup water
2 1/2 to 3 cups sugar or salt (white sugar, brown sugar, or table salt)
1 teaspoon solid coconut butter or solid coconut oil
6 drops of essential oil of your choice, or combine several (not to exceed 6 drops)

Add the remainder of the sugar/salt until you have a rather pasty mixture, at a consistency you prefer.
Meanwhile, melt the coconut butter or oil in a small container, in your microwave. MELT, but do not overheat.
Stir the melted coconut oil into your sugar mixture, and stir well.
Last, add the six drops of essential oils of your choice, stirring to blend.
Melt and add more coconut butter or oil to reach your desired consistency. Transfer your mixture to an airtight container or jar, and cool until slightly thicken ed.
Use as an after shower or after bath moisturizing body scrub.
