You Are My Sunshine

Whipped Minty Grapefruit Anti Cellulite Scrub

2 cups white or raw sugar

1/2 cup coconut oil

zest of one grapefruit

2 tablespoons grapefruit juice

30 drop grapefruit essential oil

15 drops peppermint essential oil

Place the firm coconut oil and white sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix together on low speed, until a thick paste is formed. Add the grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, peppermint and grapefruit oil to the mixture. Mix on low until incorporated and then turn the speed up to medium for about 20 seconds, or until mixture is well blended and fluffy. Store in an air-tight glass jar in the refrigerator.

How to use it?

In the shower or tub, take a handful of scrub and massage gently into skin. If possible, leave it on for a few minutes then rinse well with warm water. Do not use soap afterwards or you will remove the oil and all the benefits from the scrub. Pat the area dry so you don’t rub off all the oil and other ingredients from your skin. (Also can be used as a face scrub or lip scrub if you choose to.) Caution: Coconut oil can leave the tub slippery so be careful.

So how does it help?

Sugar exfoliates as well as softens and moisturizes skin. Coconut oil is also anti-inflammatory and a great moisturizer. It also helps eliminate cellulite, varicose veins and stretch marks. Peppermint oil helps to increase blood flow.  It also improves dull skin. Grapefruit is a diuretic, helping the body flush out waste and toxins which is a major cause of cellulite. Less toxins equals less cellulite.
