Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub

Trying some sugar scrubs.  These homemade scrubs are made from food safe items so you don't have to worry about the kids getting into them.  If they eat them they probably won't like them but it won't hurt them. 
This made two small containers of scrub.
One of the uses of coconut oil is for skin care.
Start with 1/2 cup solid coconut oil
Use your mixer and whip it a little bit.
Add 1 cup sugar
Then add peppermint oil.  Add as much or as little as you like.
Zest one lime.
Add the zest
Mix well.
Store in an airtight container.  Use it in the shower or tub.  I will tell you if you use it in the tub it will leave a little residue which could be slick.  Be careful.  But this makes your legs and arms feel really good.  It is great on those dry patches of skin.  The coconut oil really moisturizes.
