DIY Mojito Body PolishBy Natural Organics
Summer is here! For us down south, that means the heat is here too. There’s just nothing like stepping outside and feeling the sweat almost immediately run down your back…ahh…Florida life.
Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade it for the world! All I have to do to cool off is jump in the ocean…
Now that I made you jealous, here’s something that will make you love me if you already don’t…the Mojito body polish.
Yup, I put the lime in the body scrub.
One of my favorite summer cocktails is the Mojito….it’s the perfect “healthy” drink- mint, lime, sugar cane, and rum. I actually researched “healthy” cocktails and this came up! Mint is awesome for digestion, but how about for your skin?
That’s when the idea for the Mojito body polish came to me!
It’s super easy for the lazy DIYers (like me!)
You only need 4 ingredients:
Peppermint oil or peppermint leaves
Coconut oil/Grapeseed oil or oil of your choice
You’ll also need:
a mixing bowl
clean glass jar
1. Measure 1/2 cup of sugar. Pour in bowl.
2. Add 1/4 cup of the “heavy” oil- coconut is a favorite of mine, but I was out so I used grapeseed oil
3. Add 10-20 drops of peppermint oil- the more drops the stronger it will be, so be careful with this
4. Add a squeeze of lime juice- I used the squeeze bottle kind- you can also use a fresh lime
5. Mix well and spoon into glass jar.
6. Store in a cool dry place- be careful if you store it in the bathroom as it does attract ants!
Use this scrub 2-3 times per week to exfoliate and soften your skin. I used it last night when I was feeling worn out and I came out of the shower feeling so refreshed! Peppermint is amazing for it’s aromatherapy benefits!
