I love using coconut oil in my sugar scrubs as it has great moisturizing, cleansing, and anti-aging benefits for skin (you can buy coconut oil online, that will save you from having to make a trip to the store).

Also, when you’re creating your sugar scrub you will want to put them into some type of container. I like to use these hexagon glass jars because they give more of a sophisticated feel than regular round jars. And, homemade sugar scrubs make lovely gifts if packaged up nicely.

I just made bath salts for my 1st time. I used coconut oil to keep the essenence oils from irritating the skin. I bought from Hobby Lobby. Like coconut milk, it has a solid mass until you heat it. I’ve got Coconut Oil that I bought for frying at the grocer. Is that the same stuff? Thanks for your time!!

As far as I can gather coconut oil from the store is the same. Yes you can get refined, raw and all these other versions but for things like these scrubs, coconut oil is coconut oil and I use whatever I have on hand.

Hope that helps.
