Homemade Oatmeal Body Scrub Recipe
1 C. coconut oil
½ C. brown sugar
½ C. finely ground oatmeal
1-2 Tbs. olive oil
4-5 4 oz. Jelly jars
1. Using a blender or food processor pulse/blend the oats until they are a powder-like consistency. You will still have a few small pieces mixed through-out.
2. In a medium size bowl combine the coconut oil, brown sugar, olive oil, ground oats and mix well.
3. Pour the scrub into four or five 4 oz. Jelly jars.
4. Print and cut out the labels and place on the lid; the metal ring will hold the label in place. When stored in an airtight container the scrub will last for approximately 6 months. If there is any separation simply stir the mixture.
