Snow Cone Sugar Scrub made with coconut oil and sugar is a perfect for summer!
Raise your hand if you have fond memories of eating snow cones as a kid…or maybe you still love eating them. My husband used to have a guy that would ride a bike with a cart through his neighborhood, selling snow cones. We didn’t have a “snow cone guy” but we would get snow cones from concession stands and street vendors. I thought it would be fun to make a snow cone sugar scrub for summer. It smells delicious and makes your skin so soft!
For each color, mix together 3 tablespoons coconut oil and 2 teaspoons almond oil. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar to each.
Add a couple of drops of flavored oil for scent and a drop or two of food coloring to tint the sugar scrub. I put watermelon oil in the pink sugar scrub, lime oil in the green sugar scrub and raspberry in the blue sugar scrub.
Tilt a small jar (I used Kerr 8 oz jars Kerr Half-Pint Wide Mouth) to the side and spoon in the colored sugar scrub, one layer at a time. The coconut oil might return to a solid form, but the sugar scrub will soften in your hands or you can add a little warm water to the scrub one it is in your hands. It makes your legs and feet feel amazingly smooth! Just be careful though, because products containing oil can make the shower/tub slippery!
