Oh, Pinterest...

...How addictive you are!

I have been scrolling through Pinterest ... regularly ... for the last week. I am tossing around starting to sell some craft items utilizing my Silhouette, and I've been looking for inspiration. In the process, I've pinned literally hundreds of pins. One of the pins that caught my eye was this pin:

I am a HUGE fan of coconut lime, so this certainly fits that bill. So, I decided to try making the scrub.

Coconut-Lime Scrub

1/2 cup coconut oil (I used Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil)
1 1/4 cup white sugar
3 TBSP fresh lime juice

I did microwave the coconut oil to measure it easier. I placed all the ingredients in a jar, mixed and stuck the concoction in the refrigerator. After the coconut oil hardened a bit, I stirred the mixture again.

And this is what I've got:

I haven't used it yet. It smells ... very coconutty. I don't smell much lime in it. I plan to use it the next time I'm in the shower - I never have time to pamper myself with a bath. I'll let you know how it works!
