JAQUA Recipe of the Month- December 2016



Coconut is a favorite with the gals and guys:-) around the JAQUA office. We all know Coconut is a universal natural "miracle" nut. You can use it for so many different things. And hence the reason we love to use it in all of our products! 

We are currently in the process of testing out own new sugar scrub. But in the meantime we wanted to share this yummy DYI recipe from our friends at www.hqorganics.com so you can get a jump start. And what a fun project to share with friends and family on a cold wintry day.
ENJOY! Much Buttercream Love!

Homemade Organic Spiced Vanilla Coconut Body Scrub

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vanilla infused coconut oil
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons nutmeg

To make the coconut infusion: Heat 1/2 cup coconut oil on the stove just to melt and warm it. Cut a vanilla bean down the center, making not to cut all the way through, open and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Add the seeds to the warm oil and infuse on medium heat for an hour. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

No coconut oil or vanilla beans in the pantry? Use another oil (almond is nice but olive oil could be used in a pinch) and use 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Simply combine the ingredients with a hand mixer and spoon into little jars for gift-giving or your own personal enjoyment.
