Want to make an awesome gift this holiday season? This Chocolate Coconut Body Scrub takes ingredients you likely already have on hand in your kitchen and turns them into a deliciously scented body scrub that leaves your skin moisturized and smooth. It uses only 4 ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to make and is a great, inexpensive gift for the holiday season! I have been leaving my jar next to my kitchen sink and it’s a game-changer! Soft, moisturized, exfoliated skin!
As the winter creeps upon us, this means dry skin season, especially if you live in a cool climate like the UK. I’ve purchased store-bought sugar scrubs from the likes of Champneys before and loved them, but remember how easy and cheap they are to make yourself.
Most people know that coconut oil is a good moisturizer for your skin but when coupled with an exfoliant, in this case, one found in your store cupboard, it turns into a magical homemade body scrub. All you need is 5 minutes, 4 ingredients for this Chocolate Coconut Body Scrub.
This also makes a great gift to give during the holiday season, or really any time of year! The recipe makes enough for about 1 large mason jar (or 2-4 smaller ones) but can easily be doubled or tripled to give away to all your friends and family. Just put on a cute label with instructions on how to use and bring with you as an easy and inexpensive hostess gift or secret Santa!
And YES this is edible! But we don’t recommend this for anything other than a body scrub, though it certainly smells super tasty. Honestly, we love this body scrub so much that we plan to make some different variations in the near future to share with you as well. I’ll be posting more this week, so look out for them.

However, the recipes here are using food ingredients – sugar, spices, coconut oil, food colouring etc. which I do cook with so I am happy to make ‘beauty’ products using my Thermomix. I also have multiple TM bowls, so I can safely use separate bowls for making these without any cross-contamination. If in any doubt, don’t make them.
