DIY Coconut Oil Body Scrub

Okay, so I’m a sucker for expensive body scrub as much as the next girl, but with their prices slowly creeping up, my debit card is starting to talk back to me. So, I needed a solution that kept my skin silky smooth [not to mention, gleaming] and my going-out fund in check. Wah-la!
With six ingredients this body scrub not only smells delicious, but it’s very affordable; getting supplies to make 3+ jars only set me back $12.
The Coconut Oil keeps my skin soft and moisturized, which in the Canadian winters and my fair-skinned-burning summers it’s desperately needed. The oats/salt/sugar help rid my body of dry skin and if you’re the tanning type, this same step helps insure you get a deeper tan. And finally, the almond + vanilla extract make it smell incredible enough to eat - but trust me, I've tried it and lets just say,'s better left a mystery. 

What you’ll need:

Rolled Oats [roughly ½ cup]
Granulated Sugar [roughly ¼ cup]
Kosher Salt [roughly ¼ cup]
Coconut Oil [roughly ½ cup]
Almost Extract + Vanilla Extract [optional]
