Alas summer is over and school has started and everything will be pumpkin spiced from now until March. But for those of us who don’t want to smell like a pumpkin pie, there Has to be an alternative, right? Right?? I submit to you: Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub. Okay, so some hardasses would say this is a scent best held for spring and summer, but I disagree. For those of us who prefer the fresh scent of coconut and citrusy lime there is no better time than fall. Why? Because that’s the only way we can combat the onslaught of pumpkin spice and burnt brown sugar and vanilla. It isn’t that those aren’t great scents, but I just don’t want people thinking about turkey gravy and center pieces every time they come around me. I’d rather smell like the beach and sand and ocean waves. And I’m guessing if you clicked on this, you do, too. Enjoy!

When the coconut oil hardens, the scrub will feel dry and crumbly. Once it is massaged into the skin, the oil melts and the scrub smooths and moisturizes skin.
