  • Measuring spoon
  • Bowl


  • 1 tsp baking soda you may adjust the amount to your liking
  • 1/2-1 tbs coconut oil or I prefer to use whipped coconut body butter (super moisturizing)
  • 3-4 drops essential oils frankincense, lavender, geranium etc.


  • Mix all the ingredients together.

To Use:

  • Wet your face with warm water. Gently take the scrub in your hands and rub in small circles all over your face. Rinse the scrub off with warm water, dry, and feel your amazingly soft skin.


  • If you don't have coconut oil or it doesn't react well with your skin, you can choose a different oil. It just may not make a paste.
  • Only use this 1-2 times per week to prevent over-exfoliation. See below on why.
  • Warm your face with warm water first before applying this face scrub to help open your pores.
