Last Friday, I had plans to take things easy as I have been "running around" all week. However, the rascals had a different idea - they were both off school feeling under the weather. After managing to get them off to sleep in the afternoon, I got myself into the kitchen to concoct this African Black soap sugar scrub.
Lots of patience (about 3 hours)
230g sugar (Whitworths Fairtrade demerara sugar)
132g African Black Soap
66g fractionated coconut oil
20g veg. glycerin
The scrub makes 2 x 270g and smells wonderful even without any essential oils. The unrefined cocoa butter gives it a different edge to it. When you get to the M stage, your skin plays games with you. I live in a hard water area and managed to use only a tablespoon size of this scrub. My skin was really soft to touch.
Demerara sugar is very soft so this scrub is a bit porous when applied to the skin.
