DIY - Whipped Vanilla Body Scrub

We are back with another recipe for a body scrub. This one is a little different, as it is much creamier than my other scrubs. It moisturizes while you are in the shower and it leaves a delicious scent. My new favorite - this scrub is the miracle cure for those postpartum stretch marks and other pesky skin annoyances. 

DIY scrubs are not only great for pampering yourself after a long day but also to give as an inexpensive but thoughtful gift. All you need are a few simple ingredients and 10 minutes!

What you need:
 White Granulated Sugar ~3/4 cup
 Coconut Oil ~ 1/4 cup
 Shea Butter ~ 1/4 cup
 Vitamin E  ~ 3 gel tabs (pierce and sqeeze the liquid into your mix)
 Jojoba Oil ~ 10 drops
your favorite vanilla essential oils or extract ~ 5-8 drops oil or 1 tsp of extract (this is personal preference... and remember that the more oil you use, the stronger the scent)

Mix!! I recommend a hand mixer to get a nice "whipped" effect. 
Store in a waterproof container. This time, I opted for an upcycled candle jar that I cleaned and sterilized.
For scent, I used my favorite Vanilla Orange oil. 

This recipe calls for Coconut and Jojoba Oils, which have so many great health benefits. To learn more about these oils, please check out the links below:
As always, be cautious using essential oils while pregnant. Always check with a healthcare professional if you are uncertain if there are a risks associated with a specific essential oil prior to use.

Please let me know if you try this recipe and what you think! What type of essential oil did you use?
