Coconut Vanilla Sugar Scrub

Ahh, I remember the days I used to work at the mall and drop twenty bucks on pomegranate body scrub.  Those days are over!  Not because I don't enjoy spending a few dollars every now and then on an indulgence (Hello rose water witch hazel, you are my new best friend), but because I got smart.  You can make your own sugar scrub and it is so stinking easy.  If you cook or bake at all, chances are you will have most of these ingredients sitting in your cabinet somewhere!  What?!  I'm serious.  It's awesome!

-1/2 c. sugar
-2-3 tbsp olive oil (start with 2 and add more if you need to)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp coconut extract

Ok, now it gets complicated.  Mix all these ingredients together.  That's it.  I'm serious.  I keep this stuff in the shower and scrub my legs before I shave.  You will have the silkiest legs of all time.  You won't believe you made this happen for pennies.  I like to use the scrub and then wash off the excess oil with soap and water, but only you know your skin, so just try it out and see what happens!
