Monday, February 4, 2019

Is your skin feeling parched from the winter’s chill?  Here’s a little fix for you that we know you will absolutely love! Try making our Shack Soothing Scrub – this beautiful body scrub blend is a perfect post-sweat shower treat, especially before going to bed.  The combination of lavender and coconut oil will quickly ease your dry skin and send you sweet dreams.


  • 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 10 drops Organic Lavender essential oil
  • (optional – for a citrus note add in 3 drops Organic Lemon, Sweet Orange or Lime essential oil)


In a small saucepan mix together sugar, coconut oil and vitamin E oil.  Warm over low heat to soften and blend, stirring constantly until smooth.  Do not overheat.  Once sugar and oils have blended add the Lavender (and Lemon) essential oil.  Store in a glass mason jar.

Application:  Apply this soothing scrub in the shower 2-3 times per week.

Why these ingredients?  Brown sugar is softer than white sugar and works nicely into the skin without causing any harm.  We love sugar in body scrubs because sugar is a natural humectant, helping to hydrate the skin as well as being a natural source of glycolic acid which aids in repairing dry and sun-damaged skin.  Coconut Oil has amazing anti-fungal and antimicrobial features that help keep the skin bacteria-free and feeling fresh and moisturized. Vitamin E oil naturally repairs and restores skin cells, and finally Lavender essential oil provides both a physical and emotional calming and restorative property to this recipe.
