In my opinion, the best beauty products are the ones you can make from stuff you already have in your kitchen. Like these chai sugar scrub bars made with coconut oil (my go-to DIY beauty staple).
The sugar in these bars gently exfoliates, the coconut oil moisturizes, and the caffeine in the chai tea helps fight cellulite (plus it smells amazing).
Start by mixing one cup muscovado sugar (for a gentler scrub, swap in white sugar), 1/4 cup brown sugar, and the contents of six chai tea bags.
Next, add 1 tbsp vanilla, 2 tbsp honey, and 1/2 c melted coconut oil (it should be liquid-y but not hot, since you don’t want the sugar to melt – I microwaved mine for about 45 seconds, then waited a couple of minutes for it to cool).
Scoop the mixture into silicone ice molds and set in the freezer for at least fifteen minutes.
Unmold your sugar scrub bars, and you’re all set!
I keep a few in a mason jar in the shower and store the rest in the freezer. You could also wrap a batch up in a pretty tin for a sweet homemade gift – perfect for Mother’s Day!
