The perfect precursor to slathering your whole body with homemade body butter is some invigorating exfoliation using this luxurious brown sugar body scrub! Dry, flaky, winter skin is the worst; but this is sure to brighten your skin and your mood.
I used brown sugar as the exfoliating agent because it smells divine and is a little gentler on the skin. I used a mix of coconut oil and avocado oil because they are so nourishing! Avocado oil also thins out the thick coconut oil, and I like the whipped texture when they are mixed together. Also, if you bought other oils to make your body butter, feel free to swap those for the avocado oil instead! The vanilla added a bit of luxury for me, but if you aren’t into vanilla (or don’t want to spend big bucks on the powder), leave it out OR add in some essential oils! This recipe is super versatile, too. For example, use white sugar with lavender essential oil. Or grapefruit essential oil. Or orange. You get the idea ;).
