Body Boost: DIY Grapefruit Scrub

I’ve got something to cure those Monday blues [and no, it’s not wine]…

This is meant to awaken your body + make your skin feel beautiful. Hello, DIY grapefruit-mint body scrub! You’ll spot different recipes online, and the one I’m sharing is a combination of my favorites.

You’ll need: 1/2 c coconut oil | 1/4 c white sugar | 1/4 c brown sugar | 1 tbs fresh grapefruit juice | 10 drops peppermint oil | 5 drops grapefruit oil | 1 tsp minced mint [optional]

The sugars act as an exfoliant to ward off dead skin, while grapefruits are packed with antioxidants — providing both anti-aging benefits + hydration. Peppermint oil is a terrific healer, and gives your body a cool burst when applied topically. Note: Dispose of leftovers, as the mixture becomes oily over time. 

Happy scrubbing! Tell me what you think after trying it…
