You can use it as a replacement for vegetable oil in any recipe, or use it as a lotion, make up remover, hair de-frizzer, or a natural hair conditioner.

To get started with the sugar scrub recipe, mix about a half cup of brown sugar with about a cup of sugar.

Next, add in about a quarter cup of coconut oil. Make sure to mix this really well too.

When it reaches an even consistency, add about a tablespoon of cocoa powder and combine it all together.

Once done, store it in an airtight container like a mason jar.
