Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), and is the highest natural source (up to 50%) of the antiviral and antibacterial lauric acid. Applied topically, coconut oil exerts antioxidant effects that help to increase resistance to oxidation and reduce the signs of aging. Coupled with the exfoliating powers of natural sugar, this fragrant formula will help to stimulate cell turnover.

1/2 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix well. Scoop into a clean glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. To use, massage onto skin while in the shower. Rinse well with warm water.
