I love the simplicity of this recipe, which made it perfect for a Soap Queen Short Video. Just combine Coconut Oil and Salt and the fragrance or essential oil of your choice and you have a luxurious scrub. You may find in the warmer months that it is very soft since the Coconut oil melts at such a low temperature. So be sure you store it in a container with a good seal like our Glass Bail Jar.

I've made scrubs before and can't wait to try this one! Question though, why does it need the 2 different kinds of coconut oil? Couldn't you use just one? What is the benefit of the fractionated coconut oil?
The only way i was able to get my scrub to look like the one for the instructions was to put it in the freezer for a few minutes, stir it up and it looked amazing. But once it warmed up right back to the oil separating to the top of the salts, it still looks good, and I know it will work wonders, but really want a creamy looking scrub. My recipes don't seem to turn out the same as soap queens :/. i follow them to the tee with no adjustments, just disappointed in that. any suggestions you might have would be awesome, I am going to try to make some scrubs using the whip butter and use some other butters, hoping to get the results I am looking for.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Debbie! You're right! Because the Coconut Oil has a 76 degree F melt point it and the Fractionated Coconut Oil is a liquid this scrub does get a little melty, especially in warmer areas. If you're looking for a creamy scrub, but firmer so it keeps that creamy look, I would recommend any of the recipes that include Foaming Bath Butter. Check out the Pumpkin Spice Latte Sugar Scrub or Rose Clay Sugar Scrub tutorials for inspiration!
This is my most favorite body scrub. I have not had any problems with it separating. I didn't use the lime because, to me, it is overpowering. I love the feel of my skin after using the scrub and the smell of coconut lingers! Yummy!!
Why are the results different when I use Coconut oil, pure, unrefined, cold pressed 100% organic extra virgin and the pink salt?
The result is a very dense product.
(I did not include the fractionated coconut oil)
I did, however, purchase it for my next batch.
Should I be using a different coconut product?
My customers and myself of course just love this scrub, however, I have a similar problem as the others, melting and separating. Would it be good to try the 92 degree coconut oil or would that be rock solid and not work at all?
The pink salt is so fun and I get such rave reviews for this product!

Hi Shelby! You can try using a higher melt-point Coconut Oil or you can reduce the amount of the ratio of Coconut Oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil to make it easier to melt and thicken back up. We would suggest increasing the Coconut Oil up to 9 ounces to your 1 oz of Fractionated Coconut Oil to help out on getting mixed together without it separating.
