All Natural Facial Exfoliator Using

Coconut Oil & Baking Soda

Ingredients

1/2 cup organic coconut oil, melted or very soft
1/4 cup baking soda

Mix ingredients well, until thoroughly blended and creamy to frosting-like in appearance depending on how cold your coconut oil is. Coconut oil should be solidified.

Store at room temperature in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. I like these little 4 ounce mason jars. The exfoliator will keep for weeks at cool room temp.

To Use

Rinse face with warm water. Rub a tablespoon or so of the exfoliator between your hands to warm, then gently rub your face and lips with the exfoliator. Rinse skin well with warm water, and pat dry. You can use this exfoliator several times a week, or as needed. This may vary depending on how sensitive your skin is. If you have not used coconut oil on your face before, do a spot test to test for sensitivity.

This exfoliator does a lovely job anywhere on the body, though it isn’t quite rough enough for heels. You can even use it in lieu of toothpaste, if you want. It’s very versatile. This basic formula can be tweaked to include chamomile and lavender and calendula and other soothing, calming things..
