Day 1: Coconut Sugar Scrub

I've been meaning to make this for some time now. My poor husband's hands are so dry and cracked from the dry "winter" weather we get here in Southern California (AKA the "Santa Ana Winds"). This is super simple. My five year old basically made it!

Ingredients:

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Sugar (I used coarse.)
Essential oils (Optional - I didn't have any)

1). Melt oil.
2). Stir in sugar until you make a paste. It is about a 2:1 ratio, sugar:oil.
3). To use, just gently rub into hands/feet/body/face and rinse with warm water. Keep sealed. A mason jar works great!

Results: My hands feel soft, but still dry. I know if I use this every night, it will improve! The real test will be my hubby's dry hands!

I have a problem with dry hands too :( I made a lotion bar I found on pinterest qith beeswax, coconut oil, and tea tree oil. Its pretty thick but protects m hands during multiple washings.
