Step 1: Main ingredients

Mix together

  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 TBLS shredded coconut

Step 2: Now put your lime in the coconut and shake it all up

Add the zest of 1 lime, juice of 1/2 lime, 12 drops of any citrus essential oil (optional) and mix well.

Step 3: Bottle it up

Spoon the mixture into a small jar. Tie with a bow and give it to someone you love.

The mixture lasts up to a month and a half in the refrigerator. Careful to not introduce any water into the mixture, as it will start to go bad. It will harden when cold. Just scoop out a spoonful before you take a shower. It will start to melt as soon as it touches your skin.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
