There is nothing like pampering yourself after a long day of rehearsals or performances. I love to take a nice, hot bath to calm my sore muscles. A sugar scrub is perfect for buffing the dead skin cells and making your skin super smooth. I also recommend this scrub for your hardworking feet.
½ cup Coconut Oil
½ cup White Sugar
Zest of 1 Grapefruit
1 Tablespoon Grapefruit Juice
10 drops Peppermint Oil
25 drops Grapefruit Oil
¼ teaspoon Beet Juice (optional-for color)
Place the firm coconut oil and white sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix together on low speed, until a thick paste is formed. Add the grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, peppermint and grapefruit oil, and beet juice, if desired, to the mixture. Mix on low until incorporated and then turn the speed up to medium for about 20 seconds, or until mixture is well blended and fluffy. Store in an air-tight glass jar in the refrigerator.
