Step 2: Whip Coconut Oil
Whip coconut oil for about 10 minutes. It needs to be in the solid form in order to be whipped. You will need to stop the machine a few times to wipe down the sides to make sure it all finds that nice, creamy, lotion-like texture.
Step 3: Baking Soda
Add in the 1/3 cup baking soda. Continue to mix until there is an even texture throughout the scrub.
Step 4: Adding Oils
Scoop mixture into a glass jar (glass is best for essential oils)
Add in the drops of essential oil and Vitamin E oil, and vitamin A oil (I had to puncture the capsules and squeeze the liquid into the jar) – mix up with a wooden stirring stick.
Step 5: To Use
Take a small amount of the mixture and rub onto your skin. I used small circles to gently exfoliate the skin. Do this for a few minutes, then wash off with water and pat dry. Do this every day.
