    Wow Louise, what a great list! So many of these look so amazing! I made a sugar scrub from a recipe I found on a blog once, and their was so much coconut oil in it that it made my tub quite slippery and great for quite awhile after! 😬 Are there any of these that you could recommend that are not so oily?

      Hi Clarissa, yeah unfortunately most DIY body scrubs do have a fair amount of oil in them as this is what gives you the silky soft skin. However you could reduce the amount of oil you use and make the scrub a drier consistency. Try half of what the recipe says and see how it looks, you can always add more if the consistency is too dry. If you don’t fancy that then I recommend making the sugar scrub bars or cubes! Let me know how you get on 👍
