Kitchen cosmetics are a fun and inexpensive way of giving yourself a beauty treat. This super simple recipe will make enough body scrub for about 3 or 4 applications, which is easily a couple week's supply.

Fast & Fragrant Exfoliating Body Scrub

1 cup       caster sugar (a superfine baking sugar)
1/2 cup    virgin coconut oil
4 drops    red grapefruit (Citrus paradisii) essential oil
5 drops    geranium (Pelargonium X asperum) essential oil

Blend all ingredients thoroughly and pack in a wide mouth glass jar. To use, moisten your hands and body well, scoop a generous amount from the jar, and exfoliate lightly in the shower. Rinse well.

Add a decorative container and a ribbon, and this makes a great gift idea.
