I took a few notes and decided to work with some of the items I had around the house to concoct this recipe:

  • 1/2 cup Sugar in the Raw
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 TBSP Epsom Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Vitamin E oil (optional)
  • 6 drops orange oil

In a large bowl, I placed the sugar.

Next, I got the coconut oil, and melted it in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

It smells really great. All you have to do is rub it on your feet or hands and then rinse for a clean soft feeling.
